Drought is becoming a recurrent factor in Languedoc Roussillon, after a relatively spared 2018 vintage, 2019 was again marked by an episode of intense drought. The year began with a cold and rather dry spring which constrained the vegetative development of the vines. Then, the high summer temperatures arrived and caused growth stops during the heat peaks.
However, the situation was unblocked before the harvest by a drop in temperatures at night during September and some beneficial rainy episodes. The sanitary condition being very good, the vines were able to restart their ripening process.
This vintage is later and more concentrated than last year, with better defined tannins and weaker acidity. The quality is promising thanks to an irreproachable sanitary state and a greater concentration of berries in a more Languedoc style.
