The weather

The 2006 vintage is the fruit of a very contrasted climate. During that year, the environmental conditions were changing in a very unusual manner, passing from one extreme to another, throughout the entire year. Fortunately, spring and summer were both in general hot and dry. One hundred seasonal workers laboring day after day for three full months allowed winemaker to wait patiently for the absolute peak of each variety of grape.
