Primeur wine vinification
It is elaborated from the unique Gamay grape variety.
Harvest is done by hand when when berries are fully mature. Bunches are then transported in small crates.
Those steps are necessary to insure a good carbonic maceration which lasts 4 to 5 days. This winemaking technique is done at a 28 to 30°C temperature which allows the aromatic power of the Gaillac Primeur.
