Grapes: 100% Chardonnay
Careful selection of the grapes from 10 to 25 August with an average yield of 52 Hl. per hectare . The grapes are pressed gently to extract only the best must. A part of the Chardonnay grapes ferments in steel tanks for 8 months at controlled temperature, the other part (15%) ferments in 225 lit. barriques. For the second fermentation the cuvee is added with selected active yeasts and with a small quantity of syrup (Tirage) and it’s bottled in the sparkling wine bottle. After 24 months the wine is disgorged; with the pressure in the bottle (for the Satèn 4 bar maximum) the yeasts come out from the crown cap. With this process, a part of the sparkling wine is lost, it is filled with the same cuvee (dosage). It follows a 6months refinement in the bottle before the Satèn is released into the market.
