With a beautiful, very bright pale pink colour, this vintage seduces with its very intense bouquet of candy, coconut, and citrus zest aromas.
On the palate, the wine is pleasant: dense and delicate. Then it reveals a beautiful freshness and a remarkable aromatic persistence on the finish.
A mild and rainy winter, a particularly hot month of February and the summer weather in the beginning of spring, the bud break occurred early. The intense frost episode during the nights of April 7 and 8 caused historic damages to the entire French vineyard. The vegetative cycle was very disturbed, but hope is reborn with the counter-buds which restart in the last week of April thanks to milder temperatures. The very wet month of June created millerandage and coulure phenomenon, limiting again the harvest potential. Great vigilance in the vineyard allows the grapes to mature in good sanitary conditions despite a complicated climatology.
Thanks to the cool summer the aromatic precursors was preserved giving very expressive juices with a beautiful liveliness
