Winemaking: Early harvest grapes from Pyrgos village. After cooling them down to 5οC, the grapes were pressed as quickly as possible and the juice was left to settle. Primary fermentation took place, resulting in a base wine with a neutral flavor character, high acidity and just a moderate alcohol by volume, as in the case of champagne. The wine was stabilized and filtered and the liqueur de tirage was added to encourage the secondary fermentation. The wine was left over a period of 19 months on the lees before being disgorged.
