The summer of 2016 was particularly dry: a sign of a wonderful vintage. The rain came at the right time, on the 13th of September. The amount of rain was also ideal, helping the grapes to mature following the dryness of the summer. The harvest began on the 4th of October, with the early Merlots, and ended with the later Cabernets on the 20th of October.
Once again, this year, there was no hesitation when it came to stopping and restarting the harvest, in order to wait for the best maturity, particularly for the Cabernet Sauvignon. This was aided by the excellent weather conditions. Another excellent vintage, therefore, after 2009, 2010 and 2015.
Moreover, nature was very generous, combining quality and quantity.
