Harvest

Excellent weather conditions during harvesting.
The Merlots were harvested between September 27th (5 days later than in 2009) and October 5th. The berries had very high sugar levels. Optical sorting performed miracles, removing shot and dried berries.
Harvesting of Cabernet Sauvignons started on October 6th and ended on October 14th. The level of phenolic compounds in the grapes was greater than in 2009. It is undoubtedly the prized grape in 2010.
Exceptionally, the Cabernet Francs had to wait until the end of harvest. They produced wines that were surprisingly rich in aromas.
The health status was just as exceptional as in 2009.
In spite of a high alcohol level, the wines' acidity made them well-balanced and fresh.
