It is a very homogeneous vintage. It is ripe and its aromatic structure is supported by its acidity balance. From charming to more intense, deep and complex.
Ageing - Stainless-steel vats (7 to 8 months). One to two year old barrels for the wines of higher provenance. Part of the wine is aged in oak barrels, and that changes a lot. Why? Because the marriage with oxygen happens more gently (as said by Véronique Drouhin!). Result: the wine is not overly woody but is rich in aromas".
Throughout the ageing process, decisions are taken only after careful tasting evaluation. The data obtained is then completed through technical analysis. As with every other Joseph Drouhin wine, absolute priority is given to the true expression of terroir and character of the vintage.
Temperature: 12/13°C (53-55°F).
Cellaring: 1 to 3 years.
