The 2011 summerlike spring, exceptionally hot and dry, allowed buds to blossom and develop in the best conditions possible until flowering. At that stage, we were almost three weeks early compared to previous vintages. August showers were undoubtedly welcome to relieve vineyards suffering from water stress: the 2011 earliness was reduced. Searching for the perfect maturity and making the right decisions regarding harvest dates were crucial because of the grapes’ heterogeneity and the grey rot’s threat. Harvest took place without a drop of rain. Thanks to the double sorting system (both mechanical and manual) set up at the reception of grapes, we kept a ripe, healthy and homogenous crop.
The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes did particularly reach a beautiful balance and a great complexity. This new 2011 vintage is characterized by deep colors, intense aromas of black fruit, tannins and freshness.
