The 2019 vintage got off to a late start due to an extended wet winter. What followed was a long moderate growing season with mild conditions. It was neither too hot nor too cool with little fog during the summer. Warmer evenings leading up to harvest pushed a ripening curve that resulted in classic tones in the fruit, great density, and an underpinning of strong acids. The 2019 Les Noisetiers is a yellow gold color with hints of green. Aromatically, the wine has striking aromas of juicy orchard fruits combined with a slight flintiness and hints of Marcona almonds. On the palate, the wine has a dense, compact and generous texture balanced by well-integrated acidity.
