Proper vintage despite difficult weather conditions. Indeed, after a hot and sunny summer, a rainstorm is abbattirent on the vineyard until the end of the harvest. For the Medoc wines are inflexible in their youth. However, Saint-Emilion, Pomerol and Graves, harvested before Medoc, show little trace of dilution.
