Domaine de Trévallon rouge 2014

Trévallon is known for its long aging process, more than 2 years for its reds. Racking is kept to a strict minimum, the lees found at the bottom of the barrels continue to nourish the wine during the ageing process

The vintage

Just before the harvest came the rains.
This is rare at Trevallon but at the time of picking, we had to do the selection directly from the vines.
