    2006: Beautiful, very classic vintage with a heatwave in the month of July. Very great year for white wines - these are rich and opulent. Lovely vintage producing delicious red wines that are extremely enjoyables as of now.

  • Grape Variety & Plot size

    Grape variety: 100% Chardonnay on a 0.13 hectare plot

  • Terroir

    Located on the top of the slope, facing due east with meagre, stony soil and 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: 19 months

  • Tasting Notes

    PALATE: Concentrated and powerful with flavours of candied citrus (lemon) and sweet spices
