Technical card

Vintage: in our territory the 2017 vintage has been characterized by high summer temperatures and an almost total lack of precipitation. This prolonged drought caused very low yields in the vineyard, but allowed us to obtain very healthy grapes. The season started in advance but had a sudden stop at the end of April due to a lowering of temperatures which caused ruinous frosts in many vineyards, fortunately not ours! The harvest was very early compared to normal.

Harvest: manual in 18 kg boxes, 9 September
