Mineral with floral overtones of honeysuckle and lily in its youth, Tabasco, wax, honey. Palate: well-balanced. A very harmonious wine with a subtle final of spices developing into honey with ageing.
Very steep granite slopes in the south of Tournon.
An impressive Rhone vintage, with wines of impeccable balance. High temperatures proved a challenge for growers in the northern Rhone but some rain later in the season allowed for freshness to come through.
Whole bunch pressed. Cold settling between 24 and 48 hours. Half of the wine is fermented in vats, the other part in big wooden barrels (600 litres). Ageing takes place on lees from 8 to 10 months, with regular stirrings. The two parts are blended before bottling.
