2007 / Freshness and balance
The month of April followed a mild winter and was ardently sunny, exceptionally warm and very dry, breaking the record of 1921. A few spells of harmful hail storms interspersed this exceptional spring. Some flower abortion was also noticed. It was caused by a marked drop in the temperature arisen from mid-May. This coolness was combined with heavy showers and kept up practically all the summer long, except a true summery week in July. Thanks to cool temperatures the sanitary risks were controlled. So as to finish the vintage the end of August and the month of September displayed a glorious weather. This way the perfected grapes maturity shows itself with a really charming fruit, an aromatic expression of an exceptional elegance. Great freshness and sumptuous minerality are other 2007 characteristics.
