ABOUT THIS VINTAGE
2015 was a very hot year in South West France. High temperatures from April through to August ensured quality produce and mild weather throughout September ensured a good maturation of the fruit.
Although yield remained relatively low due to a lack of rain throught the summer, causing the growth of smaller berries than usual, the 2015 vintage has been ranked as one of the best of the past decade .
Clay-limestone soil throughout the plots selected for our Rosé blend. The plants are located on visible bedrock and benefit from a south facing slope.
Fruits selected for the Rosé blend are harvested before dawn to ensure quality and freshness. Direct pressing after harvest.
