The Cellar

The Cellar

The Domaine Bisconte’s vinification cellar is the older wine cellar of the Cabanes Domain, a very old Catalan winery dating from the 1800s and producing essentially excellent natural sweet wines.

The building has kept its “Catalan” character with its cairou and pebble walls. The roof renovated in the 2000s rests on a remarkable steel frame with tie rods and lanterns (late XIXs).

Infrastructures

The winemaking tools have evolved with technical progress and the absolute need to produce flawless wines.

The press is pneumatic and entirely made of stainless steel. It allows white and rosé grapes to be pressed gently in order to finely extract the aromas of our fruits. In addition, during the red wine drawn off, it highlight the so-called “press” wines which are used in blends.

Finally, the cellar is equipped with a set of equipment for temperature management. A water network supplies flags with cold or hot water depending on the phases of fermentation.

Vinification

The vinifications are traditional with destemming of the harvest. Sometimes, depending on the vintage, vinification is carried out with whole bunches called carbonic maceration.
During the vinification, a rigorous daily monitoring is initiated (sampling, tasting, degree, temperature, etc.) Finally, all of our vats are made of concrete, fiber and enameled steel.

Maturation

Maturation is the operation that finalizes the final profile of the wines, and according to our cuvées we carry out three kinds of maturing.
Before bottling, the wines are matured in raw concrete tanks or in oak barrels (Renaissance cuvée). The barrel park is made up of oaks of different origins.
To increase the diversity, the barrels have different ages. This allows to obtain a basic diversity, necessary for blends.
Concrete tanks are essentially recognized for their exceptional thermal capacity, necessary and sufficient to promote the clarification of wines and the development of aromas.
