Arnaud harvested from 25th September for 10 days and, though the grapes needed lots of sorting, yields finished up better than in 2012. He likens the vintage to 2008 but with more flesh and more flattering. Arnaud is continuing slowly to reduce the percentage of new wood – no more than 30% for the village bottlings, 50-60% for the Premiers Crus.

It was fascinating to taste the 2012 range with Bertrand Maume and his colleagues from Marchand-Tawse, who now assist in the winemaking process since Moray Tawse bought the domaine two years ago. There is still the recognisable, characterful Maume style but some of the inconsistencies of the past have been ironed out. There has been a little more pumping-over to aerate the fermenting vats and thus better manage the reductive aspects of old-style Maume winemaking. 2012 is a lovely vintage here.
