The weather

The spring of 2018 was marked by frequent stormy weather.The growing season started very well, although was later slowed down as a result of a violent hailstorm on the 26th of May. The vines nevertheless recovered fairly quickly. The month of June was relatively warm, conducive to even flowering. A hot summer followed, with little rainfall. Véraison (colour change) took place under ideal conditions. A high-pressure system set in during the month of September. The grapes were picked under clear blue skies at peak ripeness and in excellent condition.
