Château La Garricq 2016

2016 started with an atypical winter, mild temperatures and a lot of rain. Spring continued on the same path with more rain. On the physiological side, 2016 is an early year: budding started last week of March for Merlots. The rain and the relative spring freshness delayed the flowering that began around June 2nd-5th. Then, the rain stopped sharply at the end of June. The 2016 summer is the driest we have known for more than 40 years! Signs of water stress were observed on some plots of young vines and the grapes changed colour quite slowly. The 50 mm rainfall of September 13th favored the maturation of the berries. Paradoxically despite the summer drought, the 2016 harvest started quite late on September 27th. The great weather conditions allowed us to wait for the right moment in order to pick beautiful and healthy grapes. Unfortunately, the yields are down about 15% compared to last year.
