Médoc and Graves 2006
A very tricky vintage marked by highly variable weather from beginning to end. A cold, wet winter that was welcome after the searing and dry conditions of 2005 gave way to dry weather from spring through mid-summer, which was marked by prolonged scorching heat in July and a soggy September which interrupted harvest and caused concerns about mildew and rot.
Red Graves, northern Médoc cabernet sauvignons, most whites.
