Technical Info

Winemaking

The grapes are carefully sorted at the winery. Fermentation is carried out in temperature controlled stainless-steel tanks allowing slow fermentation at low temperature. The wine ages 12 months in French oak barrels, 40% of which are new

Climatic conditions

The 2012 growing season was marked by rather severe weather conditions. The rainy, cold spring was followed by a dry summer, which slowed the vegetative cycle of the vine. Nevertheless, we waited until the first weeks of October to start the harvest. 2012 remains in the memory as an atypical, complicated year where human choices were more important than ever
