INFOS

Presentation

Vinified for 4 generations, from great-grandfather to great-grandson, this wine is the very essence of our estate. Luscious, fruity and powerful, it can be adapted to any occasion. A wine for every table...

The vintage

The 2023 vintage was marked by a number of meteorological events due to climate change.
The vine's growth cycle came earlier and earlier, with warm, wet spring conditions. Although we were spared frosts, we had to contend with heavy attacks of disease on our vines. The attention paid to the vineyard helped to stem the spread of these diseases.
During the summer, high temperatures and drought accompanied the development of the bunches. Veraison was spread out over July and August, depending on the grape variety and terroir, enabling the grapes to ripen very well.
The rains at the end of August and September helped to increase the volume of the harvest, which began on 6 September and lasted for 4 weeks, allowing perfect management of work in the vineyard and cellar. The harvest was of very good quality and the yields very satisfactory, once again demonstrating the adaptability of our vines and our terroir to climate change.
