Tasting note

“A clear, shining straw colour. Middling aromatic intensity. A very fine floral touch. It is round and harmonious with glycerin, tasty, sensual and elegant. Good acidity and rather gastronomic. A great balance with the alcohol well integrated.”

Vintage 2019

The year is to be remembered for the heatwave that lasted until the end of June, with temperatures of up to 43 °C that especially affected the Carignan. A hot summer, but with showers that cooled off the vines. Optimal conditions continued through the end of August resulting in grapes that were concentrated and well balanced. Great quality with slightly lower yields.
