Harvest

Merlot harvest: September 25th until October 3rd / Cabernet harvest: October 6th until October 15th.
Hand-picked harvest. The splendid weather permitted rigorous plot by plot selection, allowing both of our two grape varieties to achieve progressive and optimal ripeness. The harvested berries were plump and juicy, with generous fruit and tight skins, yet silky and elegant tannins.

Vinification

Fermentations are done traditionally with very soft pumping-over to respect the lively character and structure of the fruit. After three weeks of maceration followed by malolactic fermentation, the wine was put in French oak barrels in mid-November

Vintage

Summer was cool and humid, bringing mid-veraison around August 8th.
