The wine shows great balance between weight and freshness, with elegance derived from seamless minerality. Layers of subtle fruit notes combine stone fruits, acacia flowers and spiced hazelnut butter. The finish is long, intense and spicy. A wine whose balance permits it to age gracefully.
The vineyards range from 10 to 35 years old and the soil is full of limestone and clay.
A vintage of excellent quality, which started early thanks to a warm spring and early summer, with some very hot whether in July and August. Pinot Noir in particular had small berries, but beautifully concentrated and Chardonnay managed to hold its acidity.
Half the wine is aged in lined concrete tanks and half in oak. No new oak is used - instead second to fifth use barrels.
