Grape-Picking

Manual, with a selection in the vineyard on the stainless grape bin. The Harvest started on the 25th of September. Thanks to a sweet and rainy winter, then a dry and warm spring, followed a fresher and rainier summer, the Harvest was a bite delayed. But,  the grape-picking went very well with beautiful maturities for the fruits. Good conditions letting augur a vintage 2014 particularly concentrated, fruity with tanins of a beautiful finess.

Traditional during 15 days - Using thermoregulation for a good control of the temperatures

 

Ageing

8 months in wooden barrels

 

Wine-tasting notes

To the eye, a beautiful purplish ruby colour. To the nose, appear tasty and fruity notes of crushed stramberries which are also present in mouth. For the after taste, we also find flavours of Violet. This beautiful vintage is provided with a beautiful concentration of velvety tanins and fine flavours, assuring a very good ageing potential.
