After an unusually dry winter and early appearance of the new shoots, at the end of April we had a period of frost but fortunately we got off lightly. At the beginning of May the first grape blossoms started to open. Following a wet July accompanied by thunderstorms, some with local hailstorms, the vines made fast progress towards the final ripening stage. The harvest began very early at the finishing of August and after about one month it finished at the beginning of October.

– 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.
