Weather Conditions

The cold, damp spring did not clear until towards the end of June. The weather picked up during summer, which, on the whole, was warm and sunny, although punctuated by showers. Good conditions prevailed for the harvest, which started early in October. Botrytis attacked the grapes in late September, and picking began in early October, delivering elegant, well balanced wines that have aged well.
