The base wine was kept on the lees for 8 months initially during the first fermentation. The magic of the bubbles begins during the 2nd fermentation that occurs in the bottle thereby extending maturation on the lees for 48 - 60 months. After disgorgement (removal of the yeast lees) and dosage (adding base wine and sugar) the final product is left on the cork and then released.
