the year of the viticulturist

Weather this year was rather challenging, with a cold spring that hampered flowering and brought on considerable coulure and millerandage. Yields inevitably suffered (especially in old Merlot vines) Special care needed to be taken during picking, which was very spread out. The crop was particularly small. Precision winemaking every step of the way, from the vineyard to the cellar, resulted in a well-focused, beautifully fruity wines with great colour and high-quality tannin.

Tasting notes:

Toasty overtones as well as hints of black fruit, plum, blackberry, and pepper on the nose
Full-bodied, fresh, and vibrant on the palate
Attractive fresh structure
