In 2015, the grapes were just perfect. The fruit was in impeccable condition and at optimal ripeness; the winning duo. One year after the harvests, tasting confirms what everyone anticipated: The generous wines from this sunny vintage will be noteworthy.
Things went very fast in 2015, both in the vineyards and the winery. Flowering took place in early June, followed by véraison in mid-July, with the start of harvesting at the end of August.
