For our little jewel in Margaux, this was a unique and complex vintage.
The 2013 winter, particularly rainy, was characterized by a 25% rainfall increase compared to the average of the last 30 years. April initiated a dry and sunny spring as well as the beginning of the vegetative cycle. Hopes for a mild spring did not last though.
The sun and summer temperatures arrived early July and even if the rain slightly continued, the South of Médoc did not suffer from hailstorms. The sun prevailed the first days of September reducing the vintage’s delay until rain returned at the middle of the month.
The 2013 harvest required a constant adaptation to the weather forecast; the ripening monitoring and the expertise of our winemaking team contributed to the success of this one of a kind vintage.
