Weather conditions

Winter was very rainy and mild, so the bud burst took place under favourable climatic conditions at the end of March, beginning of April. Growth started quickly but its evolution was slowed down by temperatures in April which dropped significantly. A mild and dry spring (temperatures were higher than normal) allowed an easy flowering at the beginning of June but cool temperatures in July disturbed the “véraison” process which began only at the end of the month (the last ten days of July were hot and dry).
The weather during August and September was good and allowed the picking to be realised in good conditions
