After initial alcoholic fermentation the base wines, vinified
separately on the basis of origin, are aged for 8 months in
temperature-controlled stainless steel vats. Afterwards they are
expertly blended with noble reserve wines (at least 20%) from the finest vintages in the magical rite of cuvée creation. This technical detail gives Cuvée Prestige outstanding personality, further enhanced by bottle aging in underground cellars at a constant temperature of 12°C.
From April to July each year.
