To be savoured with your closest in a room free from distraction and noise. This is a moment you will want to remember.
In the wake of a dry, grey and cold winter (albeit one with only rare frosts), budburst took place mid-April owing to a sharp rise in temperature. However May was marked by very low temperatures, although with no rainfall. Early June was hot and sunny. Capricious summer alternated between sizzling heat and rain at the end of August. Harvesting was set to start from 16th September to 1st October. The composition of the 1996 musts was absolutely exceptional. It was impossible to find identical analytical characteristics in past harvests, i.e. such richness in sugar and such strong total acidity. The characteristics of the 1996 wine offer a long cellaring potential. 1996 was an extraordinary vintage and this is the best of the best.
