The Indian summer led to the optimum ripeness of the Cabernets, whose proportion forms the backbone of this wine and confers pronounced spicy notes.
A deeply-coloured wine with good concentration and black fruit aromas of blackberry and blueberry. Oaky and fruity flavours come to the fore, accompanied by a minty freshness and spicy and liquorice notes, which add harmony and balance. The wine starts out smooth, becoming increasingly intense yet underpinned by a delicate tannic structure. All in all, a very
elegant, full-bodied and powerful wine.
A rainy winter and spring enabled the soil to store up significant water reserves. Fortunately, the humid weather did not upset flowering.
Summertime marked the arrival of hot days and cool nights, which dried out the soil, kept the vines healthy, and provided ideal sun exposure conducive to producing perfectly ripe grapes until the harvest.
