The Vintage 2013 : .After a long winter and a gloomy spring, the summer was warm and sunny but with intervals of violent hail storms. The harvest took place in the last days of September under a bright sunshine. The difficult weather conditions at the beginning of the year and the hail storms have considerably impacted the yields in most of the wine regions but quality is there. The white wines are tense with citrus fruit aromas and a well-shaped acidity. Partiel aging in oak casks (demi-muids) during 8 months.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Intense aromas of citrus fruit mixed with iodine and saline notes. Elegant and solid structure. Finely grained and pure texture. Well-shaped minerality. Persistent mouth coating finish. Score : 91 - Burghound June 2015
Food pairing : Pâté, lobsters and poultry as well as many goat cheeses.
