Vintage Description

 Mild temperatures in April led to early bud break. Favourable weather conditions in May further accelerated the development of the vegetation but a dry period in June slowed down shoot and grape growth. After a humid July, a warm August followed with many hours of sunshine. After several rainy days at the beginning of harvest, the autumn weather developed favourably with considerable fluctuations in temperature. The grapes profited from a long phase of vegetative growth and were in good health, though berry size was somewhat smaller than average. The white wines are very well balanced, with beautiful fruit, fine acidity and juicy freshness. Charming elegance and pleasant tannin structure characterize the red wines.
