about the harvest: 

A cool season and moderate weather conditions during the growing season slowed down ripening, which resulted in a delay of harvest on average by 10 to 14 days. Thanks to the cooler season, we had striking colour and flavour extraction from the grapes in the cellar, which promises a treat from the 2022 vintage wines.

in the cellar : 

Bunches were destemmed and whole berries went directly into the press. Kept constantly under carbon dioxide gas to ensure minimum oxidation, the grapes only underwent the softest pressing stage. The soft and short pressing ensured that only the free run juice as well as the outer pulp juice was extracted, which result in a vibrant, lively wine with an appealing colour.
