Fresh cherry aromas. Fruity with a good tannin structure. Well balanced structure, a fresh wine.


We had a lot of rain during winter (August to October), the soil was extremely wet and cold up to November. At flowering the temperatures were in the mid-ten, not hot enough to warm up the soil and make the pollination happening. Flowering took 5 weeks and resulted in 40 to 50% hen and chicken berries (small berries, non pollinated).

From mid-December to mid-February, the summer temperatures went from 15-25˚c.

Vintage started end of March for sparkling, then the maturation of the grapes was very slow with high acidity. We finished picking the late grapes second week of May.
It was the latest vintage for the last 20 years.
