Description

Weather conditions: 
After a mild, wet winter, the vines were way ahead of schedule, and the perspective of the infamous “Saints de Glace” or Ice Saints in May was daunting. May was indeed chilly, but there was no frost. After the month of May, warm weather set in, interspersed with storms, and held forth until harvest. An outstanding vintage.

Tasting Notes:
Colour: light amber, golden reflections, limpid and brilliant. The nose is full of finesse with no aggressiveness, excellent balance, heaps of maturity, aromas ripe plum, pear and apricot with nuances of mango. Light and mild on the palate, poised intensity, easy-to-drink, superb balance and elegance. The aromas on the nose come through on the palate with great depth and plenitude. Outstanding length, beautifully rounded.
