VINTAGE NOTES The 2013 growing season began with a dry spring and mild temperatures, very similar to the previous vintage. Bloom occurred evenly under excellent conditions, setting an ample crop. With the exception of one heat spike in late June, temperatures were consistently optimal, resulting in notably healthy vines. Meticulous canopy management and substantial crop thinning, brought the vines into perfect balance. From veraison to the harvest, a long Indian summer contributed to the exceptional quality of the vintage. Sunny days, followed by cool evenings allowed for even, slow ripening. No rain or large heat spikes made for berries with amazing fruit intensity and a classic varietal profile.

TASTING NOTESåÊDeep dark color with saturated ruby and a vermillion nuance, 2013 Les Pavots reveals a deep bouquet of cacao powder, coffee, black cherry, blueberry and blackberry, licorice, with nuances of cedar, cigar box, cloves, Asian spices, black tea, graphite, vanilla, a stylish ‰Û÷garrigue‰Ûª touch and black truffle. Extremely full-bodied, the wine offers the same rich, ripe fruit impressions on the palate. The mouth feel is very dense and round, with elegant tannins, which lead to a long finish. Complex, the 2013 Les Pavots will age gracefully for two decades and provides a classic presentation of our estate‰Ûªs terroir. åÊ
