Throughout the year, the planets were perfectly aligned: no frost, winter rains to replenish the soil and a generous summer sunshine without excessive heat. These ideal climatic conditons resulted in very healthy grapes and excellent sanitary conditions. A remarkable vintage as much by the quality of the berries as by the duration of the harvest ! (8 weeks)
