Winemaker's Notes

Following exceptional climate conditions throughout the vegetative cycle of the vine, the maturity of the berries was absolutely noteworthy, especially as regards our cabernets. The perfect sanitary conditions allowed us to harvest serenely from October 1st and to optimize the picking of the different plots. Grape harvests ended October 15th. The 2009 vintage reveals a high gustative quality due to moderate yields and the balance of the blend between Merlots and Cabernets Sauvignons. Beautiful extraction of all skin components that gives a rich, structured and deep wine. The controlled ageing in oak barrels brings delicacy and volume for a promising ageing potential.
