After a cold and rainy winter, the warm, damp summer ensured good fruit set but
also rapid development of downy mildew. Thankfully, the subsequent summer was
hot and dry, reducing the threat of parasites and allowing the grapes to ripen well.
During the harvest, the thick skins of the red grapes gave ripe and fleshy tannins.
The balance between sugar and acidity is remarkable and gives a rich and
beautiful vintage.
