Pavillon du Lac

The vintage
2019 was a vintage of contrasts, marked by strong local variations. With a cool spring, heatwaves in the summer and dry weather throughout the year, these climatic conditions prevented the development of disease. The cold and rainy weather in June disrupted flowering, causing poor fruit set and uneven berry development and ripening. Then the water stress, variable depending on the sector and the terroir, led to blocked ripening. The berries were therefore small in size, resulting in low yields. Fortunately the rain, which returned from 22 September, revived ripening and allowed the red grape varieties to reach good ripeness.
Cabernet sauvignon : 50%
Merlot : 50%

Tasting notes
Intense colour, with an attractive garnet hue.
Complex on the nose, combining fruit and vanilla notes with a hint of nutmeg. Supple and full on the palate, this wine shows beautiful balance, combining the roundness and suppleness of Merlot with the elegance of Cabernet Sauvignon. The perfectly integrated oak leads to a long and spicy finish.
