WINEMAKING

The control of the yields, the short pruning, the disbudding, the leaf plucking and the hand picking are effectively contributing to an optimum maturity of the grapes.

Since 2010, modernization of equipment is improving the reception of the grapes which are sorted out on a vibrating table and vinified into temperature controlled stainless steel vats before pressing and filling in oak barrels by gravity.

The initial part of the tending in oak barrels lasts about 10 months before we make the first racking.

The wines will be bottled after 11 to 20 months tending depending on the appellation, the vintage and the color of the wine.

The quality improvement of the grapes and the modernization of the winery aim to strengthen the excellent reputation of Laleure-Piot gained over the past vintages in France and abroad.
