Wine Description

Winter is really starting around the 15th of December with snow. The winter is present until early March with cold temperature ( -17°C early March ) and snow (mid of February). Spring starts on March 14th with temperatures which are going to 25°C but a humid weather follows immediately a too warm week. The flowering of the vine starts around the 6th of June and is finishing 2 weeks later under very hot weather conditions. After it, we forecast a smaller harvest in quantity; may be 15% less than in 2004. Even if the weather conditions are not exceptional the vines are suffering by water stress : the year 2005 was the hottest year after 2003. We begin harvest the 19th of September under a beautiful weather and finish the 25th of October. Wines from 2005 vintage are firm, elegant, very well balanced with a good body and structure and a ripe and fine acidity.
