As in 2016, the year 2017 was marked by spring frosts. It touched more plots but overall in lower intensity.
The start of the campaign was hot and dry, accelerating the growth of the vine. The flowering, which is earlier than usual, then orients us to a grape harvest in early September.
Grape Harvest 2017
Finally, the harvest took place from 2 to 13 September. The quality was at the rendezvous with a sanitary condition overall very good. The torrential rains of 13 and 14 September forced us to finish the harvest for the white wines earlier than hoped.
The wines have finished their fermentations and are waiting for the natural cold for clarification and stabilization. The barrel herding tends to increase every year to bring various aromatic palettes for the joints.
