THE VINTAGE
In 2019, the climate was very dry and hot during the growth of the vine. As a result, the harvest began very early in the season with grapes showing excellent health, thick skins and intense colors.

The reds with aromas of ripe fruit, raspberries with a slight touch of mint present a beautiful minerality. On the palate, the tannins are elegant and well concentrated. This vintage shows signs of a long aging potential.

TASTING NOTES
Intense ruby red color with purple reflections. The very first nose is very mineral: ink, schist. Then with aeration, all the dark fruitiness develops: ripe blackcurrant, cherry jam, bay leaf and Espelette pepper. The palate is remarkably balanced, with great
density but elegant. The sweetness softens the tannic sensations, the mineral tension tightens the wine to infuse it with beautiful energy. The tannins are voluminous but very silky. Very persistent. Notes of black fruits, olive, graphite and zan at the end.
