The 2016 vintage produced numerous surprises. The mild spring was succeeded by a frigid April that initially brought growth to a standstill. Constant hard work in the vineyard ensured that the situation was kept under control. A changeable start to the summer was followed by sunny days in late August and September. The grape harvest began in mid-September. The white wines are distinguished by a pleasant aroma supported by a well-structured acidity, while the red wines are marked by their powerful fragrance and matching.

– deep cherry red
– cherry, raspberry, rose-hip tea overtones
– voluminous and velvety on the palate; long, smooth finish

This wine should be partnered with red meats, game or piquant cheeses.

Fermentation in large wooden casks with extended maceration for 4 weeks, malo-lactic fermentation and 18 month ageing in barrique (50% new), light filtration and bottling.

Gently sloping, south-east facing vineyard at 220 – 260 meters above sea level, very warm micro-climate, loamy, gravely weathered chalk.
