Quite, Quite simply, a very good vintage
Early bud break due to the mild winter slowed down vegetative growth, letting flowering take
place in cool weather with no significant effects on the future harvest.
The summer was exceptionally hot, leading to significant water stress in the vines, but this was
limited by much-awaited rainfall! Therefore, ripening was not halted, conducive to quick and
homogeneous véraison (colour change).
Thanks to a dry, warm and sunny month of September, the grapes gradually developed good
colour and tannin potential characteristic of a very fine vintage.
“The 2019 vintage at our estates is once again in line with some of the greatest. Even though
the vines experienced significant water stress, this did not halt ripening. Wines from this vintage
have a high alcohol content, but nevertheless present an impressive fruitiness and a beautiful
tannic structure, resulting in a well-balanced blend thanks especially to the remarkable Cabernet
