The pumping over of our Pinot Noir grapes in Sancerre
In Sancerre, after the harvest, the Pinots Noirs grapes are put in vats. Then, we carry out pumping over operations.
How ? It is an operation which consists in extracting the must at the bottom of the tank to return it up with a pump to break the marc floating and protect it from oxidation !
Why ? For a smooth extraction of color, aromas and tannins.
