Vintage that nature created thanks to sufficient water supply on the last two years combined with an early dry summer which helped to make a stop on the growth. July finally victorious with its strength and its zenithal sun, made resistant grapes, with compact bunches after a grouped blooming around June 2nd. The thick skins could accept moderated end summer rainfalls. The rainy episode from mid-September, on our plowed soils, didn’t dilute or break the skins but only helped to bring a good juice to the grapes. The berries kept the richness of the sugar and phenolic compounds, reminding the 2010. Grapes of anthology! This year, pressings truly a concentration of good wine, are very opulent and will contribute to the long ageing character of this vintage. A vintage with terroir expression and precision in the wine profile.

Red cherries, white pepper with hints of mint give to this wine a fresh and chewy taste with a lightly toasted hint. The mouth is full and silky with a kind of softness all along the taste which makes this wine very delicate and very approachable already. A second wine is charming and full of pleasure.
