Harvest, bunch selection and destemming processes. Grapes are cooled and placed in pneumatic presses. The grape juice obtained is poured and, once cleaned, it is fermented in stainless steel barrels at a controlled temperature of 16 °C using selected yeasts. After the fermentation process, the final blend is carried out on the base wines, with equal parts of Chardonnay and Semillón. The second fermentation of this base wine takes place in the tanks, where it is kept in contact with yeasts for 30 days. Once the prise de mousse is complete, sugar is added using a high-concentrated syrup, known as expedition liqueur, which defines the Extra Brut sparkling category. Finally, it is corked and the muselet is placed.
