Les Crestes vineyards are situated at a height of 400 meters above sea level on hillsides of pronounced slopes, with the characteristic slate soil called “licorella”. A third of the grapes comes from vineyards of more than 50 years old, and the rest comes from vineyards with an average of 15/20 years old.

A magnificent vintage. Very cool winter with snow and rain. Rainy spring with moderate temperatures. Fresh summer. Hot August with significant contrast day/night. Temperate and rainy September. A prodigious combination of refinement, subtleness, sharpness and strength. Balance all over.

Grape selection in vineyards, and at the winery grape entry, with two consecutive table selection. Fermentation in small tank size of stainless steel, at controlled temperature of 26 ºC, with a total maceration period of 18 days. Aging of 10 months in French oak (very thin grain).
