Pernand Vergelesses, 1er Cru Sous Fretille 2018 Domaine Francoise Andre
Domaine Francoise Andre
The harvest is done manually with a meticulous cluster selection. Whole grapes are then pressed in a pneumatic press. The slow and steady pressure increase of the press produces fine and elegant wines. The settling process (separating the must from the solid particles) is thorough, contributing to the wine's excellence. The must (the juice extracted from the grapes) begins its alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in 350 litre barrels. 30% of the barrel is renewed annually: a voluntarily moderate renewal to let the terroir express itself. Hand in hand with our Coopers, we seek the perfect equation between the type of barrel and the wine's character.
Age of vines: 40 years
