harvest note

2018 is an exceptional vintage with harmonious wines! Following a cold winter, the early Spring was rainy. However, beginning in May the growing season was ideal, sunny and dry, without rain. The bloom was accomplished with perfect weather conditions. July and August were some of the warmest and driest on record, but without the heat spikes of 2016 and 2017. From mid-September, two weeks of cool nights, following a few days of rain, helped the end of the maturation and allowed grapes to develop a complex aromatic profile and to retain a nice acidity. And gave us a perfect weather for the harvest from September 18th, to the beginning of October.

tasting note

A beautiful ruby color and a complex nose with notes of black cherry, blackberry, wild strawberry, peony, liquorice, graphite and delicate wood flagrance. The palate is really vibrant, with a subtle harmony between the well-balanced structure, the expressive aromatic complexity and the energetic acidity.
