Sommelier's Notes

2018 was a year marked by a spell of frost in April, and followed in quick succession by an episode of hail on the 26th of May. The year was also marked by heavy downpours in Spring before to get better conditions from the flowering. Despite the attack of mildew at the beginning of the summer in certain parcels of red vines, the sunny period from July through to the beginning of October truly saved the vintage and guaranteed a good ripening of the grapes. The harvest began on the 28th of August with the whites and finished on the 13th of September. The reds required a lot of attention at both stages of picking and sorting, those parcels affected by mildew. The meticulousness of our vineyard pickers, plus the effectiveness of our talented cellar team and our technical ability helped maintain healthy and ripe grapes. 


Pale yellow, with green highlights. The nose is elegant with notes of citrus fruits (lemon), summer fruits (peach) and fresh hazelnut. This wine offers a remarkable sensation on the palate. With its round, smooth aromas of ripe fruit. An intensely fresh and lively finish. 


Age of the vine: 35 years
