The miraculous harvest. Damp winter. 445,3 mm. of precipitations in the vine-growing year. Several storms in August, there was hail on the 2nd and 3rd of August.
Stormy rains and heat in September which caused some outbreaks of botrytis (September, 1 to 10). From the 11th of September until the end of the harvest was a dry and sunny weather with northerly winds that dried the outbreaks of botrytis.
The days were warm and the nights were fresh. The harvest changed radically.
Selected bunches from different plots. Applied methods from own research and development on polymerisation of tannins and anthocyanins.
From the 28th of September to the 28th of October.
In French oak vats, with controlled temperature.
In 100% brand new French oak barrels. 8 months in barrels and 4 months in bottles.
By natural methods, clarification using only egg whites, without filtration.
Very deep with a dark cherry background. A slight evolution can be seen in the rim but the whole presents an appearance of a very young wine, with liveliness.
It is very intense, with great finesse and delicacy. There is great depth and blackness. The fruit is mainly black but shoots of red fruit sprout from the bottom of the cup. The sensation of rain that the wind brings, dragging the aromas of the freshly wet earth, are mixed with some notes of violets. Cocoa, cedar wood from the cigar box and sweet spices appear in perfect combination.
It is voluminous and fresh, with great fullness and at the same time lightness. The retronasal route is very powerful and the whole is elegant and delicate.
The fruit is very ripe but maintains its freshness and is reminiscent of black and red berries. There are many spices and a sensation of minerals, earth and rain. The tannin is very elegant and fresh.
The aftertaste is very long and at the bottom of the mouth remains the memory of elegance and freshness.
