The Malbec grapes with a potential alcohol of 11.5°are handpicked in boxes of 18 kilograms. Grapes are cooled and subsequently placed in pneumatic presses, where they are macerated for around 4 hours to achieve a soft color extraction. Once the expected color is achieved, it is vinified as a white one in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts at a temperature from 15°C to 17°C. There is no malolactic fermentation. After adding the tirage liquor, the wine undergoes a second fermentation in tanks and it remains in contact with its lees for 30 days. Sugar is then added through highly concentrated syrup known as liqueur dexpedition, that defines the Brut sparkling category. Finally, it is corked and covered with a muselet.
