- After a very cold winter the vegetation growth started quickly as from end of march. The 28th-29th frost had luckily not too much effect on our vines. They started to bloom beginning of june. Alternating cool and very hot spells in july and august made it difficult to decide the right tile for harvest. Finally we started on the 4th of September. Little sortation was necessary because of the quality of the grapes. After fermentation, the wines had a deep shiny shade and very fine red fruit aromas slightly jammy. In mouth the wine is dense , rich and elegant.
