Terroir

Clay and limestone; more clayey at the bottom of the parcel and very calcareous at the top. Elevation mid-slope.

Tasting

Aromas of pear and pineapple with an ample and complex palate and a finish in minerality. To be appreciated young or also when older, depending on one's personal taste.

Vintage

The year of balance through freshness. In other words, it was a cold winter, followed by a mild spring then a cool and slightly damp summer. The harvest was late and the mildness of September allowed the grapes to achieve an excellent maturity without losing acidity. As the crop was 40% below normal, it goes without saying that the wines achieve a rare level of intensity. The reds are well-coloured, rich and powerful and gifted with good acidity; they reflect their climats with sincerity. The whites are crystalline in structure and rich in aromas well typifying their appellation. In general, there is good keeping potential for both colours (5 to 15 years).
