Sauvignon Blanc 100%
2019, like 2020, was a traditional, and fantastic, Bordeaux vintage. Winter was cold enough to rest the plants, while the rains replenished the soil’s water reserves. Spring was perfectly balanced and dry, preventing any disease and fungus. Summer was warm and slightly dry and allowed the fruits to be harvested at pick maturity without any problems. A fantastic vintage where quality and quantity were exceptional!

Sandy gravel soil, oceanic climate with high igrometrie yet with very good airing. Excellent conditions for Sauvignon blanc with strong aromatics.
