This wine with its lilting name is unanimously acclaimed. The nose reveals subtle toasty notes, but above all aromas of red berries such as blackberry and wild strawberry. On the palate, freshness and fruit give way to perfectly controlled power.
The 2021 vintage was a challenging one.
Historic frosts hit the vineyards at the beginning of April, but our vines were spared for the most part, thanks to a hilly vineyard with high plots that were able to avoid the frost. Subsequently, we had to increase our vigilance tenfold during the summer to avoid any risk of mildew due to wet weather. We took the risk of not harvesting too early that year, and the results were conclusive: the month of October was particularly sunny, allowing our grapes to slowly reach very good ripeness...
