The winter 2017-2018 was warm, but the rain helped the plants replenished their reserve. March 2018 was hot and show signs of early blooming. Fortunately, Jérôme had just invested in two weather stations and this investment paid off right away: from mid-April until mid-June, it was consistently raining. This usually brings a lot of problematics such as mildew (fungus). He was able to be very reactive and prevent the spread off any disease with organic compounds. After this stressful spring came an outstanding summer. It was hot and dry to a point where it turned into a lasting drought. Since the plants and soils were loaded with water, they could sustain and make the best out of this challenging climate. Fruits reached pick maturity and a high level of concentration. A healthy, highly intense, and lush vintage: exceptional!
