Detailed information

Vintage

In the Languedoc, after a cold and humid winter, the wet spring was followed by an up-and-down summer with succession of hot and cool spells. A few weeks of rain in June allowed to recharge the water reserves and overall we find the volumes of a normal year. This favorable climatic context permit to harvest the grapes at their optimum maturity in the majority of parcels. 2018 has all the characteristics of a beautiful vintage in the Languedoc with a nice fruit and a very harmonious expression of aromas.
