Viticulture Practicing organic with biodynamic principles.
This cuvée is issued from a small, Southeast facing parcel of Merlot at 300m of elevation. The parcel Villarzel is pre-dominantly made up of clayey-limestone. This 100% Merlot is from a ripe vintage, while previous vintages were characterised by heavy rainfall and cool temperature, the 2018 vintage had balanced yields, fine concentration and bright yet well integrated acidity. This resulting wine is well-rounded and fruit-forward, with a pronounced freshness, calmer than previous years. Tannins are ripe and velvety. We can expect a wine of "mediums" acidity, tannin and body, polite and drinkable. We find a Merlot that is soft and harmonic, with concentrated black currant, fleshy black plum with a balance of yeast and fresh cut herbs.
