The Winemaking

The birth of a vintage

A vintage is the aromatic expression of a sequence of climatic conditions that take place from the flowering of the vine, in June and the completion of the grape harvest in October, for a specific ‘terroir’

No two vintages are alike

We are convinced that our artisanal methods consist in revealing the difference between each vintage rather than to mask them. The difference in the climatic conditions offers a wide range of solutions, all of which can be managed.

  • A cold, wet winter will lead to a harvest with reduced maturity, which will produce lighter wines that have floral, delicate aromas, not so suitable for ageing, but will be very pleasant to drink.  : 1980-1984-1987-1992-1997-1999-2002-2007
     
  • A hot, dry summer will produce rich, full-bodied wines. Powerful and tannic with aromas of ripe fruit that will generally have good ageing potential:  1976-1982-1985-1989-1990-2000-2003-2005-2009-2010.

 

In our opinion, it is incorrect to say that 2009, for example, is better than 2007. This depends entirely on what you are looking for in a wine.  If one is looking for a wine to age, that may be the case, but this will mean that the 2009 will not be suitable for drinking immediately. As a contrast, the 2007 vintage, with less tannin, was very pleasant and delicious to drink rapidly. Let yourself be surprised by the extraordinary variety of aromas and flavours that each vintage has to offer, without succumbing to preconceived ideas. 

The birth of a vintage is its vinification, blending and ageing of a wine
