Winter 2019/20 was warm and did not allow the plant to fully rest nor the soil to replenish entirely its water reserve. April being warm and dry, maturity happened early, exposing the flowers to potential frostbite hazards. Fortunately, it did not happen, and Summer came in, very dry. A vintage marked by drought. Not a single rain from June, until the exceptionally early Harvest, started on August 22nd, finished end of August (not seen before). A fantastic and unique vintage, branded with high concentration, very small yeast, and maximum quality. only 25-30 hl/ha, a very small yeast, for a collector Vintage!
