HARVEST AND WINEMAKING PROCES: 2016-2017 winter was cold and dry. A pretty hot spring led to an early bud break. The yield was badly reduced by the late frost that swept through the region on April 28. Summer was dry but not too hot. An outstanding September experienced some wide temperature fluctuations with pretty high temperatures during the day and cold nights which resulted in a great grape ripening. Harvest started on October 4th and ended on November 3rd when we picked our Cabernet Sauvignon. It was a rather complicated harvest for the harvesting dates, the grape sorting due to the spring frost. Once at the winery, grapes are sorted and destemmed and all the steps of the winemaking process will be gently carried out by gravity. The whole berries will be put into the tanks by gravity.

After the destemming process, the grapes arrived at the deposit, by gravity, almost complete and without being squeezed. Grapes were vinified in stainless steel tanks. The malolactic fermentation was carried out in deposit and in French oak barrels. Finally, after the rejection of grapes in the selection table we only managed to produce half of our usual production.
