We report the third review of our Atomos Wine published on The Luxologist website from Switzerland.
What does manually de-stemming mean? While traditionally wine was made from the whole bunch of grapes, and in some cases still is, de-stemming machines have made it possible to separate the stems from the grapes. Atomos, however, are patenting a process that involves de-stemming the grapes by hand so that only the very best grapes are manually picked from the vines and then immersed in a tank of wood chips and aged in a cave where humidity is strictly controlled. While this is an exceptionally time-consuming process – unheard of until today – it is one of the key secrets that makes Atomos one of the rarest wines in the world and ensures the retention of an exceptional flavour along with remarkable maturing results.
