Very expressive nose with aromas of verbena, exotic fruits and a slight note of pear.
On the palate, the wine is rich and luscious and reveals a pleasant tension. The finish is very aromatic, enhanced by a nice bitterness and a lot of freshness.
A mild and rainy winter, a particularly hot month of February and the summer weather in the beginning of spring, the bud break occurred early. The intense frost episode during the nights of April 7 and 8 caused historic damages to the entire French vineyard. The vegetative cycle was very disturbed but hope is reborn with the counter-buds which restart in the last week of April thanks to milder temperatures. The very wet month of June created millerandage and coulure phenomenon, limiting again the harvest potential. Great vigilance in the vineyard allows the grapes to mature in good sanitary conditions despite a complicated climatology.
Thanks to the cool summer the aromatic precursors of Sauvignon was preserved. Harvested at the beginning of September, the first juices are very expressive and show great liveliness.
