Wine Description

(2011 Vintage) The Winter was cold, very dry and unfavourable to the development of diseases. There was little rain. The budbursting and the flowering were quick and regular due to a hot and dry weather, especially during Sum‐ mer when the recorded rains were less than normal. The vegetal growth was steady and early. The vineyard was particularly healthy. This excellent ripening favoured the concentration of sugar and of phenolic compounds. In spite of an early deficit of water, the vine was able to extract from the soil of deep gravels the necessary water for its development.
