Vintage

2016 was an exceptional year. The reds are aromatic, powerful, round, fine and balanced, while the whites display freshness, full body and great length.

Food pairing

Enjoy with roasted meat, foie gras, chicken stew with black olives, a platter of strong cheeses or with a chocolate mousse.

Vinification

Sustainable viticulture is the focus with de-budding, de-leafing and green harvest to limit the yield and increase the quality. Hand harvesting in small crates to avoid berries’ crushing. De-stemming and sorting is followed by a natural fermentation and maceration of around 4 weeks. Cap plunging is carried out manually (no pump). The juices are funneled into French oak barrels (1yr old), where they age 18 months. The wine is bottled by gravity without filtration.
