The skills and know-how at Prosper Maufoux have been at the service of a wide range of Burgundian appellations since 1860. Whether they are regional appellations or Grand Crus, the firm remains equally exacting in terms of vine tending techniques, grape quality, vinification and maturing; always aiming at getting the very best from each terroir. Grape used in this Cuvée are from Côte d’Or near the city of Beaune. The soils are predominantly chalky clay to highlight all the elegance of Pinot Noir.
The grapes are sorted and de-stemmed before being taken to the vats using a conveyor belt in order to keep the grapes whole and avoid damaging them. Cold pre-fermentation maceration is carried out at 10°C for 4 to 5 days. During this stage, the fruit aromas and other components such as anthocyanins are released. This is followed by fermentation during which the cap is punched down on a daily basis in order to extract the tannins. The wine is vatted for 18 to 20 days before being aged in lightly toasted barrels with 10% new oak.
