This is an old revision of the document!

Background information

  • In vintage 1996: admitted batonnage, but frequency not disclosed other than comment that batonage was “less than in previous vintages.”
  • In vintage 1998: lees stirred weekly through the end of ML fermentation.
  • In vintage 1999: lees stirred weekly through the end of ML fermentation (per Tanzer). However, Burghound (Allen Meadows) reports that “Vincent [Morey] did observe that they did more batonnage (lees stirring) than usual (once per week versus the normal once every two weeks) and for a longer time as they believe this would do a better job of protecting against premature oxidation and would permit them to use less sulfur.” [Don Cornwell ed. note: another winemaker who thinks more batonnage = less sulphur needed. This is utterly counter-intuitive to say the least.]
  • In vintage 2000: lees stirred weekly through the end of ML fermentation.
  • In vintage 2003: some cuvees acidified twice–i.e. before primary and after ML fermentations
  • In vintage 2005: stirred the lees every other week until the malos completed between January and March [2006]
