Tasting

Freshness and density are this vintage’s hallmarks: floral notes evolve quickly towards herbal-tea notes, giving a fresh edge to the dominant citrus aromatics. On the palate: rounded and refined.

Winemaking

The grapes are hand-picked at dawn from the estate’s oldest vines, in late August onwards. Their juices are gently extracted, in an oxygen-free environment, using a state-of-the-art press.

After light racking, the juices undergo several weeks’ stabulation, and are then vinified at 15°C in temperature-controlled vats.
