Vintage 2019
Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel - Grand vin de Bordeaux - Caisse Bois - Union des Grands Crus - UGCB

A dense and elegant Vintage

Exceptional weather conditions gave the vintage its character:

A dry winter with strong temperature variations leads to the beginning of flowering on June 5, the vine grows slowly. Summer is dry and very hot: Three months of summer without water. Our clay-limestone basements were beneficial in avoiding water stress for our vines which could have been induced by these conditions. This summer allowed us to pick very aromatic and concentrated small grapes. The veraison was fast and uniform. The result was a superb quality of harvest.
Like every year, we have harvested by “tries”, to pick only fruits at optimum maturity. The ageing on lees, in barrels, will give this wine a nice sweetness and a quite exceptional aptitude for aging.

In the end, we obtained wines with a superb touch, volume, sweetness, freshness, both fine and aromatic.
