Weather conditions

The season began with favourable conditions and early budding. Flowering took place during a dry, sunny June. The summer was more chaotic, cooler and stormier. The vines hit delays, and veraison was spread out over a long period of time. From late August onwards, particularly hot weather set in for a significant period, culminating in an unusually mild end to the season. There was significant temperature variance, helping to ripen the pips and skins. The weather remained dry, ensuring well-concentrated grapes.

Tasting notes

The wine is purple in colour. It is initially pure and airy on the nose with cherry, strawberry, violet and thyme aromas. Once swirled, the minerality comes to the fore, heralding a silky wine. It is very rich right from the attack then develops on the palate with refined, smooth tannins and crisp acidity. A lingering, elevated finish. Just as on the nose, the general feeling of freshness creates an impression of a vibrant, harmonious wine.
