Growing Season

A quite intense winter and heavy frosts in the spring gave way to a summer of moderate temperatures in the 2011 season. These conditions led vines to reduce their yields naturally, and grapes to develop their plenitude within two weeks of delay in relation to regular harvests. It was also a very dry year (210 mm), the third one in a row.

Harvest Dates

  • Sauvignon Blanc: March 25th and April 1st
  • Pinot Noir: March 29th and April 8th
  • Syrah: May 9th
  • Malbec: May 23th
  • Cabernet Franc: May 24th
