› The vintage

After a number of low yield harvests, the 2016 production was normal.
Initially, cool, wet temperatures slowed the spring vegetative growth greatly. Fortunately, the weather improved but residual moisture created perfect conditions for mildew. Extra vigilance was demanded to protect the crop. An August heat wave and subsequent warm weeks until harvest created hydrique stress in some fields but the grapes eventually ripened perfectly.
Harvest began on September 20th and finished 7 weeks later.
In the cellar, a few fermentations finished more quickly than in the past. The wines are well balanced, fresh and easy to drink.

"This mouthwatering white is lightly fleshy, carrying flavors of kiwifruit, candied pink grapefruit peel, lemon thyme and smoke on the silky texture. Juicy finish. Drink now through 2026" [+]
