The nose is a subtile blend of orange blossom, peach, Haribo peach, pineapple, fresh thyme and cardamom. It's so integrated, so in sync, that we can almost picture the orchestra's conductor before the stage. The palate matches the nose. It's a skilful balance of power and delicateness, a pair of iron hands in velvet gloves juggling with a firm yet airy tannic structure, a freshness provided by the thyme, a bright acidity of passion fruits and a lingering spiciness. Long finish.

Incredible wine with no added sulfites. A life lesson that some risks are worth taking.

Getting to know Paul's background as an international ballet dancer is key to understand his wines and this particular cuvée. Elegant, delicate, humble, honest and sensitive are the words that comes to mind when tasting this wine. More than traditional tasting notes, I'd be tempted to describe it as a ballerina dancer performing perfect yet, effortlessly looking moves.

Vintage: A mild winter was followed by our third consecutive growing season
with below average rainfall. Very little disease pressures allowed us to focus on treating the vineyards and vines with compost tea and algae based foliar sprays. A cooler summer than 2022, reduced the effects of hydric stress. Early August electrical storms rained on some of our inland vines while our maritime vines missed out. A small crop that quickly reached maturity. Very small berries with good acid retention. Higher nitrogen levels in fruit allowed the clean ferments by the indigenous yeasts. Final wines
are concentrated and generous.
