A large vintage but the finest wines were marked by an elegance and delicacy of texture

Weather Conditions

Conditions unsettled throughout much of the year. An uneventful spring was followed by storms during May. June was cold and damp and much of August was stormy. By the end of summer, however, the temperatures had risen and most of September was sunny and hot.
