In Languedoc-Roussillon, from budbreak to harvest, the vegetative cycle was marked by a succession of atypical and extreme climatic events which led to a significant drop in production. The intensity of the losses varied according to the sectors but the most affected vines were not harvested. After a very early start, the harvest took place in record time and under optimal weather conditions. If the volumes are historically low, the vintage proves to be of an excellent qualitative level, with beautiful balance on the palate and intense aromatic expression. The perfect sanitary state of the harvested grapes contributed significantly to this qualitative success.
