The 2018 harvest began at CVNE on the 19th September and ended on the 26th October. Given the adverse weather conditions of this year’s harvest, timing of key tasks in the vineyard was critical to obtaining high quality grapes. The harvest began with a dry autumn, following one of the worst droughts in history, and winter began with long awaited rains, cold spells, frost and snow, which were common in past years. There then followed a cold, wet spring and a warm summer. Considering that this was a year with high rainfall, the harvest took place calmly and selectively.


Fermentation takes place during 10 days at 28-30° C in our 100 hectoliter French oak vats. Malolactic fermentation in new French oak barrels. For the barrel ageing we put the wine in French, American and Hungarian oak casks successively for 17months. Finally, we left the wine to agea in bottle for over a year.
