VINTAGE: The unusual shift between the seasons has created a 2014 vintage with great potential for Centre Loire Wines. The unexpected warm weather in autumn produced exceptional wines with finesse and power. 2014 was characterised by a long growing season. The mild end to the winter and a dry March warmed the soils and accelerated growth. Bud break began in the first days of April. Except for the period from June 6th 13th, and the second half of July, the year was relatively cold until the end of August. Therefore, the vine was delayed throughout the whole season, despite bud break being 10 days early; there was a 3 day delay for flowering and a 4 day delay for veraison. For rainfall, 2014 was broken down into three phases: dry in March to mid-July, followed by heavy rain until 25th August when finally the return to dry weather permitted the moderation of water levels.
WINEMAKING: The grapes are partially de-stemmed and fermented at 28° C for seven days. The pressed wine and free-run wine are aged separately and gently filtered prior to blending and bottling.
TASTING NOTES: With notes of red berries on the nose and lovely finesse on the soft, round palate, this is a crowd pleaser. A light and refreshing red that can be served slightly chilled for something different.
