in the vineyard : The vineyards lie in deep red soils ensuring excellent water-retention and adding structure and fullness to the wines.
Bud break was 5 to 7 days later compared to the 2020 vintage, giving rise to later flowering and a late start to the 2021 season. Rain and cold weather conditions at the beginning of November had a very positive effect on set and was a contributing factor to a better 2021 season. The cool summer conditions gave the 2021 season a start with a slow ripening period and grapes reached phenolic ripeness 3- 4 weeks later. These factors contribute to more fruit intensity and higher acidity levels.

in the cellar : Cold skin maceration was carried out for six hours before the free run juice was left to ferment in stainless steel tanks for three weeks at 12°C. The wine was left on the gross lees where batonnage was applied for a week. It was then racked and left on the fine lees till right before bottling
