These wines can be obtained by two methods.
The first one consists of a straight pressing of the grapes as soon as they arrive in the cellar, just as for white wines. There will be a short time of contact between the grape juice and the skin. Consequently the colour of these wines is lighter. It is called "rosé de pressée".
The second method consists in starting off a maceration and then in racking some wine when the desired colour is obtained. So, it will be stronger and the wine will be full-bodied. It is called "rosé de saignée".
The methods of maturing, stabilization and clarification that will follow will be the same as those used for white wines.L'élevage, la stabilisation et la clarification qui sensuivront seront les mêmes que pour les vins blancs.
