The 2020 vintage, exceptionally early, marks the return of fresh wines, fairly well balanced. The winter temperatures were quite mild, which led to a very early bud burst, 12 days ahead of 2019. The mild spring allowed flowering in mid-May. The summer was hot, but not scorching. The 2020 vintage is characterized by good acidity and a lot of elegance. On the nose, they are marked by citrus fruits and freshness for the whites, fruit for the reds. The result is an elegant suppleness that makes them suitable for enjoying in their youth, without altering their aging potential. 2020 is a balanced vintage, combining freshness and delicacy.
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.
