At the beginning of the harvest, all the conditions were gathered for the success of this vintage: a rainy autumn ensuring optimal water recharging, a mild and dry winter, a summer marked by hot days and nights cool enough to preserve the grapes. The harvest began in the 3rd week of August and took place in optimal conditions with magnificent grapes, a beautiful maturity and an excellent sanitary state.
