2016 was a year full of contrasts, marked by a wet winter and spring followed by several months of dry, sunny weather during summer. Grape ripening continued thanks to a brief rainy spell in mid-September. An Indian summer then set in, with a particularly dry month of October. Cool nights combined with warm days during the harvest were conducive to perfectly ripe grapes. The harvest was thus exceptional and the crop wonderfully abundant. The resulting wines are incredibly smooth and deeply-coloured, with very round tannins balanced out by good acidity and fruity notes.
2016 was a paradoxical year, producing an excellent wine reminiscent of the greatest vintages.
