Precision and discretion!
A cold winter with few good days in February and without a common springtime.
We registered little and late grapewine bleeding on 4 March.
The return of the swallows announced a warm and good month on 5 April and the sprout on 14 April.
The beginning of May was warm reaching 30ºC. There was an early flowering. We observed a very early flowering on 31 May.
In the second half of June, it was very cool with the drop in temperature and rain (50mm) on 14 June.
July was very warm and had the effects of the summer heat wave. The vine was able to support well thanks to the rains in June.
By the end of July and during August, the temperatures dropped a lot with temperature minimum of 15ºC during the day and weak rains. This situation made the vine have a rest!
From 23 to 26 August there was a strong rainfall (70mm) comforting the vine.
At the end of August and the beginning of September, the climate was good and warm, a perfect climate to finish the season.
The harvest was early for the rosé on 15 September and for the red wines from 19 to 29 September.
- “Les Pensées de Pallus” 104 barrels: 30600 bottles.

- “La Croix Boissée” 6 barrels: 1500 bottles.
- “Le Coq de Pallus Blanc” 1 600-liter barrel: 780 bottles.
Vintage 2015 is probably the one which we desire for the great wines. A year without any difficulty with rains and good climate is the result of a perfect balance for the wines.
A vintage with a high balance where each element, acidity, aroma, tannins and alcohol have a complete precision.
Vintage 2015 is considered to be as one of the greatest vintages in the 2010´s though it is less popular than the previous vintage.
