  • Seasonal Outcome The moderate spring rainfall filled aquifers, creating a water reserve for the hot summer months. A very warm July, which favored the premises for an optimal ripening, was followed by an August that was equally hot, but with excellent day and night time temperature excursions. This enhanced the quality of the grapes, both the fragrances of the whites as well as the synthesis of the polyphenols of the reds. A September of rare beauty, sunny and dry with warm temperatures allowed us to complete the ripening and the harvest in optimum conditions.
TASTING

The structure is gentle and pleasant, tannins are balanced and well integrated. The acidity to the mouth makes this wine fresh and easy-to-drink. The finish is savory and characterized by a unique fruity persistency. It gives its best at 16C°.
