THE VINTAGE

After a mild winter and a cool spring, marked by an episode of frost in April, followed a summer punctuated by a few very hot episodes. Thanks to the rain in early August, the grape ripening process did not have to suffer from excessive water stress. It is a late vintage with a low yield. The first cuvées suggest lower average degrees than in previous years, high color intensities and good acidity that will ensure great aging potential.


TASTING NOTES
The color is dazzling, golden yellow and pale green. The wine is very aromatic: notes of toasted hazelnut, followed by white-fleshed fruits and small white flowers. Nice tension. The palate reveals notes of apricot and vine peach, as well as a certain minerality (wet schist). The finish is delicately roasted, with a nice length. An elegant and deep wine.
