The vintage

The 2023 vintage was marked by a number of meteorological events due to climate change. The vine's growth cycle came earlier and earlier, with warm, wet spring conditions. Although we were spared frosts, we had to contend with heavy attacks of disease on our vines. The attention paid to the vineyard helped to stem the spread of these diseases. The vines were therefore able to continue growing. During the summer, high temperatures and drought accompanied the development of the bunches. Veraison was spread out over July and August, depending on the grape variety and the terroir, enabling us to control ripening very well. Rainfall at the end of August and September helped to increase the volume of the harvest.
Harvesting began on 6 September and lasted for 4 weeks, allowing us to manage the work in the vineyard and cellar perfectly. The harvest was of very good quality and the yields were very satisfactory, demonstrating once again the adaptability of our vines and terroir to climate change.
