This wine comes from 45-year-old vineyards, about 5000 feet per hectare, located 500 m high and planted on granite soils with sand lines. The wine year of 2017 was marked by a dry winter, with levels of precipitation much lower than the average of the last 30 years. It was followed by a hot and dry spring, with heat waves that lasted until the beginning of the summer. This situation was maintained during the Summer which originated an early beginning of harvest, being particularly intense and of very short duration. After a few hours of skin contact on the day of harvest, very slow fermentation followed for two months. The batonage of 3 months caused a good increase of volume that combines quite well with its acidity and minerality.
