All grapes at J are hand-harvested into small quarter-ton bins and placed as whole clusters, without de-stemming, into our special Coquard press for a gentle pressing cycle. Grape juice from the various vineyard lots is fermented and kept separately until blending decisions are made in mid-November. The cuvee (blend) was assembled and cold stabilized to remove excess tartrates, then bottled in the spring. The cuvee included 5% oak-cask aged non-vintage wines that were carefully selected for this blend.
