The Cuvée Dentelle is 100% Petit Manseng. The grapes are picked very ripe, end of October / start of November, as if picking for a sweet wine.

Jean-Joseph uses natural yeasts which can be challenging to vinify given the level of ripeness of the grapes. Throughout the process SO2 levels are kept at a minimum in line with biodynamic regulations.
