2020 was very similar to both 2018 and 2019. The warm Winter prevented the soil to refill enough moist and set up the stage for a dry spring. Coming May, a lasting drought took place, followed by a very hot and dry weather in June. This created an opposite effect on the plant that went dormant due to exhaustion, stopping the maturing of the fruits. It resulted with problematic tannins, that stopped maturing while it started so well early in the season. 30% to 40% yield was lost, but the quality was very high. Although the thick skin could have been a real problematic for other vintners, Arnaud applied his signature finesse technique to make sure that he brings forth complexity and the terroirs, instead of a simplistically heavy approach.
