This wine is the setting of the property: a selection of the best plots, a sorting to keep only the best berries, a separate vinification in small stainless steel vats and aging in barrels coupled with aging in amphora and in jar.
This wine is delicate, elegant, complex...Perfect for aging for ten years but also a quicker approach for the most impatient! A rare wine produced in small quantities.
The 2019 vintage is in line with the recent great vintages of Bordeaux. The winter was surprisingly mild followed by a rather cool spring, the summer was hot but rain appeared regularly at just the right time through July and August, along with a few welcome showers at the beginning of September. This rain was necessary to keep the freshness and energy in the grapes as harvest-time approached.
