From 26th September to 11th October. 

At the start of the year, the weather was very contrasting. The rainy and mild spring gave notable stress about the health of the vineyard. The summer is hot and very dry but the ranges between day and night were favourable towards the grapes. After a wished rainy time at the beginning of September, the indian summer set in. This knowing weather is great for the maruration of the red wines and allow us to harvest beautiful grapes with a big qualitative potential.

Tasting Notes

2016 is an exceptional vintage for the Graves Rouge.

The colour is dark red and deep.

The nose is powerful, with cinnamon, red and black fruit aromas. Then a touch of smoke, game, and undergrowth.

The mouth is supple and balanced, with molten and pretty intense tanins.
