 +====== Background information ======
  
 +  * **Vinification (of the Domaine Wines):** Grapes are hand harvested and pressed as whole berries. Fermentation occurs entirely in oak barrels, 30% of which are new. Aging lasts 12 months in oak followed by an additional 5 months in stainless steel prior to bottling. The complete wines are lightly fined and filtered.
 +  * In vintage 2003: less batonnage than usual
 +  * In vintage 2004: "did almost no //​b√Ętonnage//​ at all"
 +  * In vintage 2006: Per Allen Meadows: "​raised the at-bottling free SO2 levels to between 40 and 45 ppm."
 +  * In vintage 2007: Per Allen Meadows: free SO2 dialed back to 40 ppm
