Technical Info

Harvest

The harvest took place over a record period of 21 days with 12 days of actual picking. This was due to the ideal conditions that enabled us to take our time and pick each plot at perfect ripeness, thereby maximizing the already very high potential that had been revealed by tests before the harvest. The alternating warm, sunny days and cool nights favoured the completion of the ripening process and the breaking down of the grape skins, ensuring good extraction in the vats.
Merlot: 30 September to 7 October
Cabernet franc: 12 September
Cabernet Sauvignon: 1 to 20 October
Average yield: 42 hL/ha
