The 2017 vintage saw a very mild winter. Rainfall until the beginning of June allowed for important underground water reserves. Perfect temperatures prompted the growth of plentiful and healthy fruit which flourished in the following dry, sunny and hot days which alternated with cool nights. Heavy rainfall finally arrived on 15th September – 80ml of rain over three days. The large diurnal temperature variation has given the 2016 vintage an aromatic note more defined than in previous years. Perfumes of cherry and plum and a touch of oak.
