Detailed information


July and August 2012 were relatively dry on the sector of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Almostno rain in 2 months. Fortunately, a storm and 40 mm of rain at the end of Augustallowed hydration of the plant. An episode of wind just before the harvest ideallyconcentrated flavors and gave silky and quite ripe tannins. In summary, a qualitativevintage, solar and very distinctive.
