    2004: A difficult vintage to describe
    The white wines are very good, and similar to 2001, with lemon and citrus aromas as well as very attractive overripe notes. To drink now or hold (for people who enjoy aged white wines).
    The reds are still closed at present, and not easy to evaluate.

  • Grape Variety & Plot size

    Grape variety: 100% Chardonnay on a 0.59 hectare plot

  • Terroir

    Very sunny vineyard, located half way up the slope, with perfect drainage. East-by-Southeast sun exposure.
    Thin, stony, sodium-rich soil. White marl outcrops.

  • Vinification & Ageing

    The grapes are handpicked into small crates and the whole bunches are then pressed in a pneumatic winepress. The juice was cold settled after pressing for 12-14 hours under temperature-controlled conditions. Alcoholic fermentation and ageing take place 100% in oak barrels with bâtonnage (lees stirring).
    100% malolactic fermentation
    Duration of ageing: 23 months

  • Tasting Notes

    Tasted in 2005
    COLOUR: Very beautiful golden colour with silver-grey highlights
    BOUQUET: Concentrated, rich and complex with aromas of fresh mint, eucalyptus, truffle and pastry
    PALATE: Intense and powerful with mineral, toasty, roasted and menthol flavours
    Incomparably fine length, grip, and warmth of the aftertaste
