This bottling comes from vines averaging 30 to 45 years old. The fruit is hand-harvested and fermented in whole clusters with native yeasts, kicking off Roilette’s version of traditional Beaujolais semi-carbonic vinification. The temperature-controlled fermentation takes place in open-top neutral vats with the cap kept submerged; the maceration for the Fleurie is approximately 14 days. Aging takes places in vat until bottling in the following summer.
