The colour is dense and deep. The nose is precise and sumptuous. Aromas of red and black berries mingle with a minty touch. On the palate, the tannins are fine and coated with aromas of blackberry and raspberry. The palate is full and silky. A very long finish with an incredible depth.
The vintage had many climatic incidents that made the start of the season complex : winter experienced rainfall records, some very mild temperatures, the frost and a constant pressure of fungal diseases until the end of June. This pressure was complicated to manage biodynamically but a great vigilance made it possible to limit the attacks on the bunches. In summer, the trend reversed with the driest month of July since the last 10 years. August and September experienced temperatures above seasonal averages. The water deficit reinforced the accumulation of anthocyanins in berries and the high temperatures lead to the production of sugar. The drop in temperatures in mid-September helped preserving the aromatic quality of the berries and encouraged the maturation of the tannins and their extraction. The wines produced are very balanced, rich in color and tannins.
