Château Malartic Lagraviere – Malartic Blanc

Grapes are handpicked and harvested and go for the vinification and maturation processes.

Fermentation happens in oak barrels with a controlled temperature of 20-22° with slow pressing and requires cooling to avoid forming of tartrate crystals in the wine.
