elegant and charming

Things did not begin very well for the 2012 vintage A cold snap in early February was followed by a wet, cool spring that hindered vegetative growth. Cold, wet weather in the first two weeks of June upset flowering as well as fruit set. There was a lack of sunshine thereafter as well as major thermal amplitude that cause some coulure in Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Fortunately, dry warm weather lasting from the 20th of July to the 20th of September saved the vintage and reduced its heterogeneity.

Tasting notes:

Dark, fairly intense colour just starting to show a bit of age
Fruity suave bouquet
Soft, fruity, and tasty on the palate with good structure featuring soft tannin
A delicious velvety wine with a beautiful aftertaste
