Vintage Description

Exceptional 2009 'It has to be seen ... The tastings on tanks revealed a great qualitative and greedy vintage, an exceptional concentration, with high color potential and an already harmonious balance. Harvest conditions were excellent. The number of hot days (over 30 ° C) in July and August is higher than usual rainfall is lower, all has resulted in an early harvest; The ideal weather conditions in September allowed harvest to approach with confidence. Less productive harvest less than 2.82 million hectoliters. However the quality is at the rendezvous and here is the point. All the qualities that one is entitled to expect of the great wines of the Rhone Valley gathered north of the region, frankly, expression, volume, power, finesse, elegance. The 2009 vintage looks very promising for red wines that have a good balance, color and good aromatic range. Whites and roses also announce expressive, very aromatic and lack neither freshness nor volume, nor gluttony. 2009 was a particularly successful vintage in Chateauneuf-du-Pape that favored the later varieties such as Grenache and Mourvedre and smiled patients winemakers since a mid-September rainfall has achieved a nice balance in ripeness who had suffered from drought in July and August. The best 2009 wines are wines with solid structure and fine tannins endowed with that will ensure their long aging. Although powerful, the 2009 Chateauneufs will not have the sometimes excessive side 2007.
