Climate trend

The 2008 harvest was carried out in ideal weather conditions. After a rather wet but not particularly cold winter, spring was quite normal, both in terms of temperatures and rainfall. Intervals of rain continued until mid-June, while higher temperatures in June and July alternated with cooler temperatures and further showers.

Wine Advocate

Darker tones of black cherry, black currant and violet mark this dense yet fruity red, which is firmly structured, lingering with a tobacco note. Best from 2013 through 2018.

Licorice and leather accents add complexity to the cherry and cranberry flavors in this tightly structured red. Though firm on the finish, the spice notes linger. Best from 2013 through 2020.
