harvest note

Winter 2014/2015 started with a lot of rain and mild temperatures. As usual, February and March were very dry and in May and early June we enjoyed some fair weather but also some decent rainfalls. After a cooler second half of August, temperatures were high again early September. Harvest started on the 2nd of September and finished on the 1st of October, but 80% of our vineyards were harvested before September 16th. Thanks to earlier harvest, we are very satisfied with the level of acidities in the 2015 wines. This year’s wines shows the potential of the really great vineyards that have acquired excellent ageing potential. 2015 has produced some very exciting wines!

tasting note

Delicate nose, quite open, showing elegant minty, menthol, white flowers aromas. The palate is fresh, lively and super elegant, very dry with a juicy elegant acidity. Showing medium power, the finish leaves the mouth clean and fresh. This is a very easy wine to drink.
