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.
2016 is a great vintage with its ideal spring temperatures that enabled the bud burst to occur in the best possible conditions. The summer was then very hot and dry. A vintage of great complexity and power!
