Magnum Jas d'Esclans
After a rainy winter, replenishing mostly the water reserves of the soil, spring was moderately watered and the summer incredibly hot and dry. The vines, although they have suffered from heat and water stress, produced a very good quality grape harvest in normal quantities.
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.

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.
