M i l l é s i m e 2016     Adaptation, Patience and rewards

BORDEAUX  MARGAUX

68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22%, Merlot, 7% Caberet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot

This is the reward for everyone who works in the vineyard all year long and who are happy to see that it will be a great vintage.

The vine is so beautiful because there is water available on the ground, sun during the day and nights relatively cool.

The veraison begins on August 3 and August 4, a rain of 10 mm is profitable for the vine. But, unfortunately, we will no longer have rain and the water stress will gradually appear until becoming worrying at the beginning of September.

This year, the cycle of the vine was very long and the weather conditions contrasted.

However, for the harvest, an exceptionally favorable weather allowed us to wait to harvest ripe grapes and in exceptional health condition.

Then, an Indian summer allowed us to wait for a long time that the grapes ripen thanks to the alternation of sunny days and cool nights. (Harvest Merlots from October 3 and Cabernets Sauvignons from October 17)

Bud burst was early (mid-March) after a very wet start to the year and a cold winter.

The wait is still long to reach the phenolic maturity but, patiently, we get it after many tastings of berries in the vineyard of Monbrison cradled with sun ... which were excellent moments, because we perceived day after day that we were going to a new great vintage..

Fresh climates, a vegetal development, but an important water supply.

We wait until October 3 to harvest magnificent Merlots then, we must interrupt the harvesters to get the quintessence of our Cabernets Sauvignons ... We pick them from October 17 ... under a bright sun.

The first pumps over enchant us ... colors, smells, balances are at the rendezvous ...

From June 20, the rain finally ceases (the cumulative of a "normal" year is reached on this date) to give way to a dry and hot climate.
