Joseph Drouhin Maranges Premier Cru 2007
Maceration: maceration and vinification take 2 to 3 weeks. Indigenous yeasts maceration and fermentation temperatures under total control. Joseph Drouhin seeks total control of the process of extraction; extraction gives colour and substance but should never be detrimental to the finesse and typical character of the wine.
\\\"Pigeage\\\" (punching down of the cap during fermentation): once a day until half of fermentation is done; one pumping over (\\\"remontage\\\") per day till the end of the fermentation.
Pressing: vertical press; separation of free run juice from pressed juice.
Type: in barrels (10% in new oak).
Length: 12 to 15 months.
Origin of the wood: French oak forests.
Weathering of the wood: Joseph Drouhin insists on total control of the weathering for a period of 3 years, one of the contributing elements to the elegance of the wine.
Follow-up: barrel by barrel.
