THE VINTAGE 
"It is a very complex vintage resulting in exceptional wines. Winter 2018 recorded average temperatures and rainfall. Rains allowed the filling of the water table, particularly stressed in 2017. The vegetative season began with the budding at the end of March. A stormy May has partly hindered the flowering and forced the team to manage the great pressure of fungal diseases. Summer 2018 was a real challenge, with warm and wet days until August, but thanks to the altitude of the vineyards, they took advantage of the maritime ventilation. Luckily during the harvest, in September, they had cool nights and sunny days that favoured the synthesis of aromatic compounds and the complete ripening of the skins.
The beginning of the harvest was on August the 27th, with the picking of the Merlot and the end on September the 24th with the Petit Verdot.

"This is extremely perfumed with violets, sage, lavender, currants and berries. Fresh and vivid. Medium-to full-bodied with super refined tannins and fruit. So subtle and refined. This is really long and gorgeous. Goes on for minutes. A change in style from past vintages and I like it. 30% syrah, 30% cabernet franc, 16% cabernet sauvignon, 12% merlot 7% petit verdot and 5% sangiovese. From organically grown grapes. So hard not to drink now, but better after 2023." - James Suckling, 96 points
