These wines all reflect the magical Barthod house style of perfumed energy, while each one retains the differences of its terroir. Ghislaine started relatively early, on 22nd September, and reports that vinification was straightforward compared to the viticulture. Her yields are 15 - 20% below the small harvests of 2010 and 2011, so overall a meagre half crop in 2012. Or to put it another way, one whole crop missing across the three vintages.

Ghislaine started picking on 1st October, for one week, bringing in grapes with a natural alcohol level of 12.5 to 12.8. The fruit certainly tastes properly ripe though there is a beguiling freshness behind to keep the saliva flowing. Volumes are a fraction better than last year.
