INTRODUCTIONFull and aromatic, the Aurélia cuvée is a gastronomic wine that stands out thanks to its finesse and originality.CLIMATEThe 2019 vintage began with a warm and pleasant winter that lead to an early spring followed by a warm and very dry summer. This impeded the normal ripening of the grapes but with patience we waited for them to achieve optimal ripeness.

Vivid orange-pink. Highly fragrant orange and strawberry scents are complemented by suggestions of lavender and white pepper. Juicy, seamless and focused on the palate, offering concentrated citrus fruit and red berry flavours and a suave touch of spicecake. Shows excellent clarity and thrust on a long, sappy finish that echoes the orange note.

Slightly deeper in colour, yet just as good, the 2015 Aurelia Rose has lots of black cherry, black raspberry and orange peel in a medium-bodied, rich, nicely textures style. It’s a layered, food friendly Rose that’s impeccably balanced and will be versatile on the dinner table. 90 points
