The vine benefited from the dry and mild winter and the vegetation took a lead of several weeks, causing fears of late April and early May frost. The temperature fell to -1 ° C but did not affect the vineyard at Lacquy. The vegetation was not slowed by the cold and the rains of May and beginning of June, the flower began on all the grape varieties.
The big heat of July was followed by a warm and dry weather, with strong rain every 10 days. The harvest is beautiful and very healthy.
We harvested the Folles Blanches on September 17th and 18th. The quality is splendid with a 9% vol. Alc.
We will harvest the Colombard and the Baco beginning of October.
