Climate conditions2022 was the hottest and driest year ever recorded in Gaillacois. In these conditions, the sanitary state of the vegetation and the grapes was perfect, without having to treat, except at the beginning of the campaign. Flowering and fecundation went well and the harvest could have been abundant. Unfortunately, green harvesting was necessary to allow the remaining grapes to ripen in good conditions. The intense drought did not allow the stumps to feed the grapes normally. The harvest was early, with quality berries, but containing less juice. It took place on August 25th and 26th .
Type of winemakingGrapes fermented in tanks without sulfur, at 25°C, in order to preserve their aromatic qualities. Maceration lasted fifteen days.
Type of ageingMaturation in tanks, without sulfur, preserves fruity flavour. Bottling, allways without sulfite, occured on January 11th and 12th 2022.
