After a warm and hot summer, some rainy periods enabled the grapes to achieve the ideal maturity. During the harvest (which was early), the wind regulated the excessive temperatures, preserving the aromas of the grapes. This ideal weather and healthy conditions make the 2015 vintage one of the most qualitative in recent years.
Grenache noir, Syrah
Each grape variety is vinified individually to develop its own characteristics. The vatting lasts 3 to 4 weeks according to grape variety. The wine is racked off and undergoes malolactic fermentation. Different grape varieties are blended. The ageing in vats lasts for 6 months before bottling.
