Description

The Story of the Vintage

After a cold winter, spring 2009 started with fairly mild temperatures, allowing the vines to avoid frost damage. Intermittent storm spells boosted vegetation. June and July were also affected by variable weather, but August was sunny, dry and hot, with cool nights, leading to a favourable and quick evolution in maturity. The harvest started on September 8th in excellent sunny conditions and lasted till September 21st. The grapes were perfectly healthy. The 2009 crop is characterised by an average potential alcohol level of over 10% and a total acidity of 7.5 g/l H2SO4.
