In 2012, despite an exceptional cold snap at the beginning of the year, the season ended with a nice warm spell. This favored a perfect ripening of the grapes, especially the Pinots. Still a nice balance between acidity and sugar, aromatic richness and persistence of ripe fruits and roasted almonds. Its 8 years of ageing explains the intensity of its evolved aromas, a complex whole for a successful aperitif… Combining structure and distinction.
