VINTAGE

Cool, rainy winter months finally allowed the vines to bud at the beginning of April, more or less average for the season. The “arrears” of 2-3 weeks compared to 2012 however persisted throughout the year and could not be made up even in the very hot days of July and August. The grapes nevertheless began to ripen in 100% ideal conditions and harvesting of the first grapes began on 12 September. Cooler temperatures for the harvest and beautiful autumn weather then ensured healthy, ripe fruit. The red wines are very fruity in character, rich in finesse, with elegant tannins and a powerful structure.

VINIFICATION

Ripe, perfectly selected grapes, fermentation on the skins in large, open wooden casks at 25°C, two-week extended maceration, malo-lactic and 12-month aging in barrique and tonneaux, light filtration before bottling

VINEYARD

South-east to north-east and west facing slopes between 400 and 500 meters above sea level, well-ventilated and with low night time temperatures during the ripening period. Mineral-rich conglomerate on weathered chalk.
