Vintage on the freshness with moderate alcoholic degrees.
2013 is one of the latest vintage of these last 30 years, reminding us the maturities of the 1980's years. This vintage is characterized by low yields and by atypical balances where the fruit wins on the power.
Indeed, the spring 2013 is part of the coldest and wettest springs of these last years resulting in the delay of the vegetative, up to a couple of weeks. The blooming was disturbed by strong temperature variations and results in an important flower abortion on Grenache.The meteorological conditions of the 2013 summer were good but insufficient to catch up the time lost in spring.
The alcoholic and malolactic fermentations quickly ended giving good balance to the wine with beautiful acidities, with moderate alcoholic degrees and with a grenache on the fruit. White wines present a beautiful aromatic and gustative freshnesses with a good potentiel of ageing.
2013 is a vintage with low yield, on freshness and with moderate alcoholic degrees.
