Vintage Information: We experienced a rainy winter with cold temperatures. February was even colder with important rainfalls. Spring started under a humid month of March while April, May and June were very dry months. The Merlot bud burst appeared beginning of April and mid-April for Cabernet Sauvignon. The first flowering started on May 25th and developed throughout in good conditions. Summer was hot and dry : the drought we have known for 3 year persisted and the deficit measured increased by 30 %. The veraison was observed mid July and its evolution was quite slow in August, which was cool and rainy. The first 2 weeks of September were hot and helped the grapes to mature, but the last 2 weeks were rainy and disrupted the berries maturity. More than ever the work in the vineyard was a decisive factor : the overall sanitary conditions were more than satisfactory thus the volume finally produced.
