Winery Technical Data

A cold and dry winter was beneficial for the vines to rest. Coulure and millerandage appeared after a very humid spring. In early June, flowering was delayed in some plots; however the favourable weather conditions during the vegetable cycle erased it, resulting in homogeneous crop. The veraison took place from August 5th. Summer was very dry, with high temperatures during the day and cooler nights, which enabled the grapes to ripen slowly and completely. Because of little rain, the berries remained small, revealing a dense colour and beautiful richness. Under these circumstances, the clay and limestone terroir of Canon made the difference, protecting the vines from any water deficit stress and ensuring a harvest of a very high quality. A couple of days prior to picking, cooler temperatures preserved the freshness of the berries (16°C). Showers welcomed our pickers the 1st day, then perfect weather allowed us to harvest under ideal conditions. The healthy berries and long bunches resulted in less work on sorting tables.
