Technical Info

Grape quality

On our soils, flowering progressed quickly under sunny May and June skies. The veraison took place during the first half of August with favorable meteorological conditions which then continued through the harvest. It was possible to anticipate a harvest near the end of September or the beginning of October with grape quality that would depend on the weather conditions during the last period from September to October. Low nighttime temperatures, persistent dry conditions, and sun throughout August, September and October created ideal conditions for this dream harvest. Vineyards situated on superb terroirs, those encouraging deep root penetration and thus assuring sufficient water absorption, produced exceptionally ripe grapes. The Cabernet Sauvignon, in particular, benefited remarkably from the long ripening period offered in this vintage.
The grapes, harvested from October 2nd to 23rd, were particularly ripe and healthy with historically high sugar content.


After the cold winter months (1-3 Celsius below the 30-year average), temperatures remained close to the monthly averages all through summer and into October.
2009 will be remembered for its beautiful summer, without excessive heat. Notwithstanding, there were several very hot days, some approaching 35 Celsius, at the end of June and judiciously sprinkled throughout July and August, with large nighttime and daytime temperature variations. This vacillation, as much as 20 Celsius during August and September (when days registered 28–32 Celsius, and nights 11–15 Celsius), continued all summer and on into October. The sunny days, especially at the end of August and the end of October, were exceptional, surpassing even 2005, while drought conditions (where barely 1/3 the normal precipitation fell in August, September, and October!) persisted from August to the end of the harvest.
