Characteristics of the vintage

The number of bunches was optimal. Because of the cool and the rainy spring, the bloom has been postponed of few days and then the harvest has been delayed of one week.

The summer has been perfect, warm but not too hot, so the véraison was quick and uniform.

The bunches were in a good position and they have received the ideal amount of light and wind.

September has started with an abundant rain so the soil has received the perfect amount of water to complete the grapes maturation.
