The winter was very rainy, with temperatures in February and March below the last thirty year averages. The spring was also rainy, but was still in average temperatures.
This wet weather continued until the end of June, causing heavy attacks of downy mildew on the vineyard. Fortunately, hot dry weather arrived in July and continued
until the harvests which took place in optimal conditions. The abundant aquifers have favored the development of the vine allowing to have perfect conditions
throughout the phenological stages. This explains the great wealth of the vintage and its opulence! A great vintage.
