The winter, soft and watered, gave way to a hot and dry spring, felt as an "early summer". Then the freshness came back in the middle of June with located thunderstorms allowing a smooth evolution of the grapes. Thanks to the "indian summer" of end August/beginning of September, the grapes were harvested at ideal maturity.
