Dark ruby colour with some crimson reflections, still very young. Nose of dark chocolate, mocha, very indulgent. The palate is powerful with tight and very precise tannins. Very good length with a remarkable aromatic persistence. Very great purity overall. To be decanted 1 hour before tasting
After a rather mild and wet winter, we saw the start of bud burst at the end of March / beginning of April and total bud burst by 10 April, or about 7 to 10 days earlier than in 2013 and essentially the same date as in 2012.May, June, July and August were unusually wet and cool, causing the vineyard to move from normal development compared with the ten-year average to a 10- to 12-day delay in the cycle by the end of August. Then came the month of September, with its Indian summer, higher temperatures than in August, extremely low rainfall and an East wind allowing the grapes to become more concentrated. In the space of 3 weeks, all the analytical parameters for checking the ripeness of the grapes increased strongly through this concentration phenomenon.
