VINTAGE SUMMARY
Two elements helped the Cabernet Sauvignon to reach the level of a great
vintage in 2014 : the grapes grew less after the rain in the summer and they
began ripening earlier. The extension of the ripening cycle, due to their growth
stopping earlier than the Merlot, allowed them to benefit magnificently from
the sunny late summer season.
The high quality Merlot from the plateau, incorporated in smaller quantities
than usual, provided an excellent complement to the blend bringing roundness
and aromatic richness.
