Le millésime : 2015 was a magnificent year in the south as well, characterized by excellent sanitary conditions thanks to the mild, wet winter, followed by a relatively hot, dry spring. The vines coped well with the extreme heat and lack of rain in the summer thanks to good hydric reserves. Following satisfactory flowering, rapid and regular ripening was assisted by rain that fell in August, producing berries rich in phenolic compounds and anthocyanins. As in the north, harvesting took place under excellent conditions.
Description : If you enjoy quaffable wines, this one is ideal as an aperitif or paired with a simple meal
Elaboration : The grapes are lightly crushed, then pressed in a pneumatic press, prior to clarification of the must and cool fermentation.
This takes place in vats for 90% of the blend, with 10% fermented in new oak barrels with lees-stirring.
The wine remains in stainless steel tanks until the month of January, when the wine is bottled after fining.
Excellent blend: a fruity, supple, full bodied wine with moderate com- plexity, good balance, and a medium long finish. It tastes of pear, lemon, honey, melon, and toast.
