2012 offers wines in a classic style, balanced and full-bodied.
A variable winter and a cool rainy spring, failed to make up the water deficit that had
accumulated over several years. Hot and dry weather ensued with the occasional peaks in temperature from July 15th to September 24th further accentuating the water deficit. These particular climatic conditions brought about local difficulties, prompting disparities in maturity with small berries. Following a similar pattern to the flowering, veraison remained slow.
The soils, consisting as they do of a combination of deep gravels and a sizeable clayey layer, allayed the negative effect of the considerable water deficit. They helped maintain a regular level of sugar even in very dry conditions.
The grapes remained healthy until the last week of September but rain at the end of the month hastened the start of harvesting on September 27th and through to October 18th.
