Terroir

These vines are found mid-slope on a slight incline facing east and their soil is shared between clay and limestone in medium deep ground, making this an exceptional terroir. The vines were planted in several phases, with an average age of 40 years.

Tasting

The wine is of great aromatic finesse on the nose, very intense, and develops scents of red fruits tending to liquorice and spices. Its structure is straight-line and tannic; it possesses great power and long persistence on the palate. Wait around 5 years before opening.

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).
