2016: High quality, low quantity

Vintage year review :

The harvest begun September, 24th, with a small team of grape pickers : there were few grapes. Spring 2016 was willy and wet, marked by some unexpected cold wave with strong frosts by the end of April. Summer was fine and very dry, wich allowed to produce a really qualitative vintage but with high volume variations from a plot to another.

Tasting advice:

It is a fruity and concentrated vintage with a really good potential.
