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.

– 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.
