After harvesting the grapes are immediately stored in the cold room at 6 ºC before pressing to attain the classic Hors Série No. 1 characteristics. The bunches are pressed whole and without any maceration in order to maintain a light colour. The temperature in the tank is then reduced to 4ºC to let the pulp deposit solid elements. The fermentation then starts when the temperature is raised to 18ºC. The vinification then proceeds without any chemical, or oenological, intervention. The wines are allowed to follow nature’s course. During the fermentation temperatures are retained at 18 ºC to preserve freshness and aroma
The wine is listed in several Michelin starred restaurants due to its unusual elegance. Before bottling Hors Série No. 1 undergoes a light filtration with a minimal addition of sulphites to guarantee clarity and an optimal stability.
