ALL ABOUT THE 2019 HARVEST
“Much like in 2018, the 2019 harvest was exceptional from the start, with an earlier than usual bud burst. The dry, sunny weather meant that grape quality was outstanding, with beautiful, intensely coloured fruits. The average sugar content at the time of harvest was one of the highest ever recorded, balanced by a higher-than-expected acidity – every winemaker’s dream come true.” Dominique Demarville, Master Blender.
