- At last ! Following several vintages hit by serious hailstorms (2012,13,14) 2015 started with mild, dull but early march faire conditions. Several dry and sunny periods and rainfalls at the right time accompanied paced the development of vegetation ; hot summer, the grapes were ripe and sound by the 1st of september for a great harvest. The wines are dark and shiny in coulour with very fine aromas of red fruit slightly candied. The taste is intense and of an exceptional finesse.
