The wine-making process

Chateau Sigognac respects the techniques and traditions of the Medoc. The harvest is timed to coincide with the optimum phenological ripeness of the grapes. After the grapes are sorted and completely destemmed, fermentation takes place in stainless steel and cement/epoxy tanks for approximately 10 days.

Long steeping with post-alcoholic fermentation maceration follows, which varies according to the following criteria :

- The type of wine that is desired

- The grape variety

- The level of maturity

Once the process of malolactic fermentation in tanks is completed, this brings an end to the wine making process, the wine is then pre-assembled and aged from the beginning of January.

The 1st wine is traditionally stored in barrels of French oak for anything between 12 and 15 months.

At the end of this period the final assembly takes place under the watchful eyes of the oenologists and technicians. Once this has been completed, the wine is stored in vats ready for bottling.

Chateau Sigognac is bottled on site.
