Blend : 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot
Maturing : 12 months aging, 40% new barrel
A very unusual vintage! Even though the first six months of the year were particularly rainy, flowering took place quickly and evenly during one of the rare dry spells.
This period was followed by a long stretch of hot, dry weather lasting from mid-June to mid-September. This series of extreme conditions raised fears about the fragility of grapes and vines.
However, meticulous work in the vineyard made it possible to anticipate and protect vines from the drought this summer and to reveal the crop’s full potential. The harvest was very spread out and the grapes in each plot were picked when perfectly ripe. Every aspect of 2016 was conducive to producing a great vintage! «Ideal ripening in 2016 enabled us to make very rich, deeply-coloured wines with no heaviness or hints of cooked fruit. They are very fresh on both the nose and the palate and have huge ageing potential!»
