1. 5 ha located on the southern part of the appellation, protected from the windmill and the prevailing north wind.
This situation offers more maturity because of the south facing and less wind.

Advice

Tasting notes
The wine shows a very nice concentration with some black fruit flavors. The texture is soft and rich with a long finish. It is a wine that will offer a very good ageing potential, 10 to 15 years will not scare it... but 5 years will allow it to start expressing itself.
