Aging of the 2006

We tasted with the whole technical team various batches of wines aged separately in barrels from different coopers.

This kind of tasting helps to generally bring out the least suitable cooper for our wines (or the opposite),. In any case, we rarely have a consistent point of view.

We talk about past vintages, the current one, the evolution of the work in the vineyard, changes in styles of vinification… there too, no definite opinion. This shows the challenges we face improving our work in the vineyards, the cellar, etc…

If it is not easy, it is in fact difficult” (La Palisse).
