description_recompenses
In the Southern Rhône Valley the harvest was spread out between the 2nd of September and the beginning of October. The whites were harvested in the first half of September while the reds were harvested in two stages in order to maximise elegance and intensity. The first half was around mid-September while the second picking took place towards the end of September, after a brief, beneficial rainfall. The balance and concentration of this vintage are remarkable.
