Blossoming as soon as it is opened. With its richer concentration in merlot, this wine offers a softer, lighter touch with a warm and silky texture. Its fruity aromas are intense, crisp and pleasing on the palate.
The 2015 winter turned out to be very rainy. From January to April, rainfalls have been 35% higher than the seasonal average. This weather contributed to the ground water refilling but also led to a high pressure of mildew and black rot. These outbreaks then dried without developing. The cool weather at the end of the winter delayed the budburst. The early and homogeneous flowering occurred in optimum climatic conditions during the first two weeks of June. The summer got warmer and warmer from June 25th. The vineyard had to face a significant hydric stress combined with an exceptional sunshine until the end of July. It favored the complete deterioration of herbaceous aromas. The clusters ripped quickly and evenly thanks to the first rainfalls of August. Afterwards, the cooler and cloudier weather helped to maintain a good level of acidity and a beautiful fresh fruit intensity in the berries whose size was 30 to 50% smaller than in 2014.
Made from 74% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot.
