2022 vintage : an atypical year with low yields but exceptional quality!

In the winemaker's memory, 2022 will have been a particularly atypical year due to extreme climatic conditions:

•    A very early spring frost (4/6th April) impacted the vineyard just as the vines were starting to bud and damaged the main buds. The plants regrew secondary buds with a large quantity of bunches, berries, but also empty bunches ... A late winter pruning on 2/3 of our vineyards has nevertheless limited the damage.
•    A long period of exceptional drought followed. It started very early, in May and lasted until the end of September. The cumulative rainfall for the first 9 months of 2022 was 315/320 mm of water compared to 600 mm in a normal year!

2019: a year that will not break with the high-quality reputation of vintages ending in "9"

The weather conditions in 2019 gave the winegrowing teams something to smile about: the mild winter temperatures resulted in early bud break and, consequently, an early growing cycle. The summer drought conditions were toned down by a few storms mid-July, followed by cool nights in August and some rainy spells early September.
