Tasting Notes:
Vintage Notes:
The second challenging vintage in a row, the 2014 growing season was marked by cool and wet spells, with relatively little warmth or sunshine. As we discover, however, this tends to bring out the best in conscientious growers who find a way to work with nature rather than against. The conditions meant that both reds and whites have good acidity with very clear, fresh fruit aromatics. Perfect for early drinking, too.
Vineyards:
From 0.6 ha of Chery planted in 1984 and 1 ha of Bonnette planted in 1989, both on granite soils on steep hillside vineyards. The vines are 20-25 years old. Grapes are harvested by hand.
Winemaking:
Fermented in oak barrels, 30% new, including several 300 and 350 ltr barrels which mark the wine less and are easier to manage, and the rest one and two year old at ambient cellar temperature around 20-23ºC. Malolactic fermentation is carried out. The wine is matured 10 months in the same barrels. The wine is bottled very lightly filtered and fined.
