Vintage

The 2012 vintage was uneven from bud break, which was disturbed by a cool, wet month of April, to véraison (color change), which took place over a long period. Fortunately, the months of July and August 2012 were ideal: warm and dry. This fine summer weather enabled us to do everything possible in the vineyard in order to make up for the poor spring weather.
For two months, our team worked meticulously to make ripening as homogeneous as possible, and removed any green grapes at véraison.The harvest for both red and white wines began under sunny skies.
2012 is a truly fine vintage for early-ripening terroirs such as ours.
