Aromatic concentration
description_recompenses
Harvesting began on September 2 and finished in early October. Thanks to scattered rains over the period, maturities progressed slowly. The heat of the summer made it possible to obtain a superb aromatic concentration. This vintage seduces by its aromas, its elegance and its remarkable balance.
