Definizione

French term élevage (literally "rearing" or "bringing" up) referring to wine making operations between fermentation and bottling. 1

Nota

When applied to wines [élevage] means the series of cellar operations that take place between fermentation and bottling, suggesting that the wine-maker's role is rather like that of a loving parent who guides, disciplines, and civilizes the raw young wine that emerges from the fermentation vessel. 2

Contesto

Elevage, or in English the art of maturing wine, is correctly translated as the educating or upbringing of wine. 3
