VINTAGE

vintage description

A mild and sunny winter with little rainfall was followed by a dry March, which resulted in relatively early budburst. Spring was cool and rainy, while warm sunny days alternated with rainy days in June. A hot summer, followed by rain at the beginning of September demanded a lot of effort from our winegrowers, which was in turn rewarded with a splendid autumn and ideal harvest conditions. Meticulous work in the vineyard, experience and commitment allowed our winegrowing members to brilliantly overcome the many challenges of this vintage. The white wines of the 2023 vintage are fresh and delicate and convince with their juicy freshness. The red wines, especially the Pinot Noir, are characterised by elegance and finesse.

It is a fine white wine, slightly aromatic intensely floral with a bouquet of elderflower and nettle, and spicy notes of paprika and
