Extreme climatic conditions

A hectic year in the vineyards, marked by extreme climatic conditions: cold, very dry weather and then a heatwave.

After a cold, rainy winter then a rather damp spring, good weather finally set in with very high temperatures. The state of health of grapes at harvest was irreproachable.

White wines benefitted from this exceptional weather. The harvest was healthy and well ripened. Aromas are complex and powerful, sometimes with exotic notes. On the palate, the wines are well-rounded and generous, while maintaining good tension. This vintage is elegant, balanced and already quite open and expressive. For their part, Les Cloux and Les Sous Frétille may gain in finesse and complexity after some years in cellar.

The red wines are superb. They are already remarkable for their intense colour. On the nose, they surprise through subtle hints ot spices combined with notes of well-ripe black fruits. They explode on the palate thanks to a rather rounded and sometimes velvety tannic thread. Already pleasant to taste through their aromas and finesse, they will improve by spending a few years in cellar.
