CLIMAte

This vintage has benefited from the optimal climatic conditions and promises to be an exceptional vintage with significant aging potential. The wines are generous, with a very nice structure, with beautiful colors and excellent maturation. The vintage was characterized by mild winter and spring, compared to normal rains, followed by very hot weather with summer temperatures several times above 37 ° C. The rains in mid-July and mid-August allowed the vines to avoid water stress too prolonged and allowed a good ripening of the grapes. The excellent climatic conditions made it possible to harvest a healthy crop. White wines have aromas of white and yellow flowers (acacia and linden), generous in the mouth, fruity, refreshing and with a nice tension.
