Change Chardonnay is from the Change brand by Gérard Bertrand dedicated to protecting biodiversity, vineyards and landscapes. According to the wine grower, a choice of Change Chardonnay wine is not only a guarantee of quality, fruit-driven wine with a generous palate, but also a conscious act to support the committed winemakers.
The berries are harvested once they have reached optimal maturity, during the night to benefit from the cool temperatures. A meticulous sorting out of the harvest is carried out as soon as the grapes arrive at the winery. The grapes are worked on under neutral gas in order to avoid the risk of oxidation of the musts. The grapes are destemmed, cooled to 8°C and sent to the press to extract the must. Particular attention is paid to the pressing process in order to preserve only the first and best quality juices. The juices are more or less settled according to the desired aromatic profile. The fermentation lasts between 15 and 30 days. The musts are vinified in stainless steel vats, thermo-regulated at 16°C to preserve the freshness and integrity of the aromas. After a light fining, the blending is carried out. The wines are matured on fine lees to preserve their fresh and fruity character to the bottling.
