Vintage weather conditions

2015 saw very clear delineation between the seasons. The rather mild spring arrived in perfect time after a cold, damp winter. A hot and dry June ensured good conditions for flowering. July continued the summer trend, allowing the vines to end their growth early. Finally, the storms of August and September kept this vintage from becoming too sunny, and balanced out the plant development. Harvesting began in mid-September and was completed within a month.

Tasting notes

This wine has a beautiful deep garnet colour. It begins with captivating aromas of peony, rose, lemongrass, jasmine and black cherries, before gradually also gaining tobacco, grenadine, Medjool date, salted caramel and rosemary notes. A velvety, well-rounded structure. Harmonious, physiological and saline in style.
