The vintage
Weather for the 2020 vintage was capricious, with a very mild winter encouraging an early bud break. The spring was very wet and rainy, causing coulure in some grape varieties and a significant threat of downy mildew. During the summer, a heat wave checked the grapes’ ripening, particularly on the left bank with its gravelly, permeable soil. The right bank fared better with its more clayey soil that retains moisture. The harvests in 2020 were historically early, starting on 24 August for the white grapes. The difficult weather conditions gave our technicians a hard time, but professionalism and patience enabled us to produce a fresh, aromatic wine.

Tasting notes
Straw colour with glints of gold.
Very expressive nose, mingling vegetal notes such as blackcurrant buds with the grapefruit citrus aromas characteristic of Sauvignon Blanc.
The fresh, aromatic palate is accompanied by some pleasant citrus notes on the finish. A perfect wine to drink on its own as an aperitif, or with fish and seafood.
