Early bud burst announced a precocious vintage last spring. Excellent weather conditions were favourable to flowering, suggesting a good upcoming harvest.
June and July were wet, with an important number of rainy days rather than high pluviometry. Summer finally began in the first days of August and lasted until the end of October, allowing optimum ripeness.
After a very tense early summer, grapes were finally picked with a smile, in a relaxed working atmosphere.
The wines issue from this harvest show high density, crispy freshness and great finesse.
