2018: Winter brought an important amount of rains that helped the plants to restore their hydraulic reserves. Then, an ideal Spring set up the stage for promissing a harvest: plants, buds and fruits mature at their own natural pace. Summer is dry and warm, it kept naturally away any desease / fungus. The rainy winter ended up being the key to produce such a fantastic vintage: the plant had enough water stored to go trough the "over dry" summer season. A fanstic wine that express the full potential of its terroirs.

Several parcel scattered on an elevated cool hillside. Rocky clay and limestone soil with exposition to East. Optimal sun exposition to benefit from the gentle morning light while being protected from afternoon heavy heat. Excellent aeration thanks to Valley de Soane's natural air flow.
