Detailed information

Vintage

Due to the high temperatures in July and August and very low rainfall, the harvest was started ten days later compared to 2018. Skins were thin and tannins very elegant, with notes of blackurrant and pepper. While the yields vary from plot to plot, the harvest on the estate was rather small overall. This vintage is dominated by aromatic concentration and purity of the fruit.
