Tasting Notes

"At around the time of bud burst, this vintage saw a period of stress linked to cold periods, -1°C on the plain at the end of March. Before the primeurs, the spring promised to be very dry and hot, with a very marked water deficit in March. This trend was confirmed in April and May, not necessarily through the cumulative temperature but by high evapo-transpiration.

A frost was narrowly avoided in the middle of the spring. Flowering took place under good conditions in June. July was very hot, peaking at 42°C. A large storm with 40 mm of rain at the end of July avoided disaster: The plants were watered and temperatures fell. August was dry with little rain despite a storm on 27/08. Thanks to this sparse rain, the water balance was not at its lowest. The Merlots at the foot of the slopes started on 17/09, the Cabernets Francs close the harverst on 11/10." - Damien Bielle, Technical Director
