Elaboration and aging:
Quality and quantity were the general tonic in the Es Domain, something that had never been seen in the last 17 years. As a native of the French Loire, Bertrand recalls the great years 70, 82, 90 and 2009 in the neighboring country.
Here it was a special year in every way. The rose bushes sprouted at the end of January in a winter that had disappeared. Not very cold during the months of November, January and February which gave way to good and constant late snowfalls that ended up tidying up the whole vintage.
Budding took place on 29 April and flowering arrived in mid-June. However, it was a cold summer with no rain and significant thermal extremes (the night of 14 July at 5ºC and 3ºC on 12 August).
The rain was a drag until mid-September, but the vines remained compensated and alive in addition to having good and enough grapes spontaneously and naturally.The 2016 vintage in Dominio de Es:
