*Vintage may vary by location*
The 2022 vintage was the driest year in France since records began 500 years ago. Thankfully the high elevation and sustainable wine-growing practices of Maison Saint Aix mitigated much of the impact. 2022 started with a cold and dry January, which resulted in a later budburst than usual. Luckily, the shoots subsequently grew rapidly as spring was generally dry and warm. Flowering occurred in a perfect weather window with little wind, resulting in good fruit set. The summer was one of extreme dryness. Thankfully, late rains in August rejuvenated the vines and canopy, and the cooler nights maintained good acidity. The grapes show good acidity and are well-balanced. Yields are slightly lower than in previous years however, the quality is once again outstanding.
A hypnotizing pale pink color with notes of raspberries, white floral blossoms, and stone fruits. Refreshingly crisp and dry with a mineral finish.
