The 1991 vintage was marked by the diversity of situations originating in the loss from the spring frost, but also the distribution of rain during maturation.

The completion of the ripening in fine weather would certainly have led to great quality.
The risks of rot forced the winegrowers to accelerate the harvest and organise it according to the rain.
