The soil is left impoverished after this 2009 vintage. The harvests barely over, it starts pouring raining heavily. The rain is back in the springtime after a harsh winter. Alas it lingers on the Merlot flower and triggers flower abortion and millerandage over a third of the surface.
The start of the summer is scorching. August is noticeable thanks to the temperature difference between night and day. The rain is still absent; on the other hand, the night great freshness of the nights and the moderately high temperatures of the days tend to limit drying out. However, there was a growing concern regarding this drying out, hence the great relief all over Medoc after a few days of heavy rain in early September. The rain is well timed in reaching us during the harvests, at the time of the Merlot I Cabernet-Sauvignon respite.
