Tasting Notes

There was no 2013 produced, as the grape didn't achieve enough ripeness in that cool year, so I jumped to the 2014 Petit Verdot, the most expensive wine here, possibly given its scarcity. It's sourced from a single plot at 790 meters altitude with clay and lime soils that yielded 3,700 kilos of grapes per hectare and were picked on October 6th. It fermented for 12 days with indigenous yeasts, followed by malolactic in barrel, where the wine also matured for 18 months. It's dark, concentrated, powerful and exuberant, despite the short maceration time, because the grape does not need more. It's not a grape to produce varietal wines every year, and in 2014 they had their longest growing cycle ever. The palate is full-bodied, with fine-grained, abundant tannins, chewy and powerful, a wine for a winter stew on a cold day in front of the fire. It should be a long-lived red, with all the components to develop more nuances in the bottle. This could very well be the best Petit Verdot ever produ
