A precocious and relatively rapid flowering beginning of June followed by a satisfactory berry set among all the varieties except the merlot that was affected by flower abortion and berry-shot.
July was hot sunny and dry which caused a slowdown and a stop in the growth of the vine at the beginning of veraison.
Ideal ripening of all the varieties overall thanks to exceptionally dry August and September without excessive heat.
Ideal harvest from first to last day allowing picking of each variety at optimum oenological maturity.
