Warm temperatures during spring led to quick growth until a frost at the end of April. Crop losses were limited at our elevation (100m). Yield and grape ripeness were satisfying thanks to a dry and sunny summer.
Harvested in early October 2017. Macerated in cold settings before a 15-day alcoholic fermentation at 25°C, followed by malolactic fermentation. Aged 18 months in stainless steel tanks and French oak barrels.
On the eye, a deep ruby wine with purple tints, calling for delightful black fruit aromas. Blackcurrant, blackberry, blackcherry are highlighed by cocoa notes. The palate is powerful but well balanced: melting, dense and sweet, with a long finish.
