The first months of the year were particularly cold and dry, which led to a delay in bud break, which then accelerated with the near summer weather of April. The first half of June, cold and humid, disturbed the flowering, then the second part of the month was milder. July then ensured a beautiful growth of the vines, until the harvest, which took place on quite normal dates.
