1989 remains memorable. The precocity in maturation and the richness of the grapes were exceptional.
A very hot and sunny month of May ensured a rapid development of vegetation.
The first flowers were notified around May 20th in the most precocious varieties and situations.
Just like the first summer-months, September was hot, sunny and dry. These extremely favourable terms allowed complete ripening in excellent conditions, a regular picking and no excessive rush.
