2003 is characterized by a cold and dry spring, drought settles in and spreads from end of June to end up by a scorching heat. The harvest was consequently historically early: end of August! The yields were low , a high degree of alcohol and a low acidity. Winegrowers adapted and managed to produce elegant and powerful wines.
A spring with no frosts, grapes developed properly, they were fully ripe, the yield is generous and the quality is superbe! The wines are generally fresh and elegant!
