James Suckling :96/100

“The nose immediately shows a fabulous contrast between riper mulberries and blackberry crumble and freshly ground herbs, citrus and incense. The palate shows much the same polish, carrying bright blue-fruit flavors across a bedrock of muscular tannins and driven acidity. This finishes long and very grainy yet succulent. A blend of merlot, cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon, syrah, sangiovese, petit verdot and alicante. Drink in 2022”

 

Vintage 2015

This was a vintage of contrasts! The alternative periods of dryness and intense rains we experienced, asked our self to adapt to those changing conditions all the way to finish with what was an outstanding vintage.

Bud break occurred earlier than usually thanks to an exceptionally warm month of February followed by more wet weather creating perfect conditions for the canopy development.

July presented a record-setting thirty-one day heat wave which contrasted with one of the wettest month of august over the last ten years.

September showed optimal conditions with warm days and unusual cold nights allowing the grapes to settle and extend the all-important hang time on the vine, producing remarkably clean fruit.
