Overall, the weather was very good in the 2018 wine-growing year. Precipitation in winter and spring provided sufficient moisture and thus ideal fruiting conditions. Long hours of sunshine and above-average temperatures in summer and autumn led to very dry conditions compensated by some heavy thunderstorms in August. Thanks to the optimum weather conditions in late summer, it was possible to harvest a healthy and ripe grape crop.

– 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.
