The 2015 vintage is definitely meeting our expectations showing a deep colour, intense fruity aromas and a nice body.
2015 winter was mild, neither too wet nor too cold until a last cold snap which delayed the budburst. The thaw that followed allowed the vines to catch up and we got almost exceptional conditions for the flowering. Thanks to the hot and sunny weather of July, we sprayed very little. Vines did not suffer from water stress due to the reserves accumulated in the past years. After a quick and uniform véraison, we welcomed a few rainy days in August. The beginning of September, especially hot and dry the Southern Médoc, increased our hopes for a great vintage! Harvest began on September 17th. Heat combined with a north wind gave us the chance to decide on harvest dates more accurately, tasting berries from our different plots every day. The merlot grapes really impressed us this year.
