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.

– dark violet-ruby
– fine, elegant fruit on the nose, reminiscent of ripe berries, bramble and cocoa, woodsy undertones
– dense and creamy on the palate, finely structured tannin with a long finish

This wine pairs well with game, roasts, dark meats and hard cheeses.

Fermentation on the skins with an extended maceration of two weeks at 28 °C, malo-lactic fermentation in barrique, followed by a 12-month ageing (1/3 new oak) ligth filtration and bottling in April.

Gently sloping vineyard with east to southeast exposition at 230 – 260 meters above sea level, on loamy, sandy, weathered chalk soil.
