Vintage Description

An exceptional vintage with a harvest that exceeded all performance records. Of near-perfect weather conditions, combined with extremely early harvest (the second after those of 1893) helped to develop mature wines, perfect concentration, with velvety tannins. Powerful and highly alcoholic (up to 14 ° 5 for some Pomerol), most of these wines come with a great aging potential. The dry whites are complex. The sweet prove further and richness unconventional.
