A rare wine!

Story

The vintage
2009 was a precocious vintage with perfectly healthy, fully ripe grapes and ideal fruit character.
Due to cold winter weather, budburst on the vines was late. Flowering, however, took place early thanks to a rapid rise in temperatures. Berry set was successful too. This two week advance on the normal season continued throughout a very sunny summer and allowed perfect ripening of the grapes. Harvest began September 14th under a blue sky. All of the varieties came into the picking season with excellent quality. Consequently, harvesting was done “à la carte”, and with patience, it was possible to pick each parcel at perfect maturity. Generally speaking, the wines are rich in alcohol and perfectly balanced with fine ripe acidity.
