The Vintage 2011 : After a very cold winter and a demanding spring, the hot summer was regularly interrupted by rainy intervals which early September gave way to a bright and warm weather, that speeded up the maturation of the grapes. Harvest began in the last days of September under a bright sunshine.
Tasting : Bright ruby. Intense aromas of red berries and raspberry mixed with spicy nuances. Well-balanced and well-structured. Very pure aromas. Elegant tannins. Pleasant and refreshing finish.
