DEVELOPMENT (VINIFICATION) For Anna de Codorníu Blanc de Noirs we plan the optimum moment of harvest, despalillamos the grape and the prensamos gently. To be treated of grapes, the grape skins remain for some time in contact with the wort, and we use only the first fraction of this for the base wine of cava brut Anna Blanc de Noirs. These base wines show shades of pink soft in the beginning, that subside throughout the fermentations to be in a champagne color, more intense than those from white varieties. Once completed the fermentation and stabilized the wine, add the liquor circulation. The bottles pass to the underground cellars (at a constant temperature of 15 ºC) where takes place a second fermentation followed by a period of ageing in contact with lees of yeast. En total, the wine passes 9 months in the cellar, after which takes place the removed (decanting of the bottles to facilitate agglutination and subsequent elimination of sediment) and the disgorgement. Subsequently it is added to a quantity of expedition liqueur, and finally, cover definitely the bottle with a cork stopper.
