Technical Info

Fermentation

Today the work in our cellars is put together perfectly, and with such perfect grapes to work with, it all becomes even simpler.
The high alcohol and high tannin potential lead us to choose a low temperature fermentation(26°C/27°C) to keep the fruit flavor at a maximum. The color came through immediately, showing great signs of maturity. The first run just was exceptionally thick. One of our cellar workers, Bruno Hydie, who has seen over 20 vintages here, said he couldn’t believe his eyes.
Our first tastings of this wine confirmed the great potential of this vintage

Weather

The 2010 growing season was marked by dry weather all over the region. Winter to summer was very cold, with temperatures 2-3°C below the normal average. The weather started off mild in April, but May was much cooler. Overall, the weather has remained cool for two consecutive years, with morning frost at the point of harvest on October 18th. The solar weather patterns for the 2010 season are notable and similar those of 2009. The month of April was exceptionally warm and sunny.
Both years, 2009 and 2010, had great amounts of sun, even more than the great 2005 vintage year.
