A record rainfall of 1600mm over the year! (for memory 500mm in 2017 and normally 700mm on average per year).
The spring very rainy was real favourable to the attacks of mildew on grapes and leaves. Thanks to our vigilance we were able to protect the vines effectively and do not lose the crop. Summer was mild and the pressure exerted by the disease was less. A very beautiful crop was presented but sadly, the 14 august at 18:00, at ten days of harvest a very violent hail storm destroyed more than 30% of our nice harvest. Fortunately, the Mistral and the sun that followed have dried the grapes well and we were able to harvest in good conditions.
A complex soil with clay and sandstone coloured deep red by the iron oxide, refreshed by the salt air of the Mediterranean Sea. The soil is very well drained which improves the grapes quality.
Grapes varieties :
Rolle 70% , Ugni Blanc 30%.
The grape harvest for the Rolle began September 8. These are very early morning to return quickly of cold grapes in our cellars, which facilitates the smooth running of the fermentations. We are equipped of a tubular exchanger to cool the harvest to preserve the aromas during the pressing phase.
The juice was pressed in the new Inertis press away from the air. Juices are then a holding cold for several days to clarify. Fermentation starts then, and lasts more than 15 days at low temperatures.
