The Orb Valley, in which Mas la Chevalière is located, has various landscapes, all shaped and cultivated for centuries. Vine has been paramount since the Antiquity and the well-designed plots have structured slopes, offering the best conditions for a wide range of grape varieties. The Valley of Orb has a perfect microclimate to ripen grapes without losing balance and freshness. White wines are fruity and nervy, red are supple and intense.
2017 vintage is surprising. Weather conditions were unusual, with frost in winter, a good amount of rain in spring and a very dry summer. These conditions moved the harvests 7 to 10 days earlier, giving a lower yield in comparison with the previous years. Yet, quality is there. The harvested berries showed a nice balance between sugar and acidity and presents a complex and lovely aromatic structure.
