    The Year of 2018:

    “During the growing phase of 2018, from budburst to veraison, there were cool conditions and a lot of humidity. Then, during the final ripening phase in July, August and September, it was incredibly hot,” he says. “That heat compensated for the cool growing phase. The wines have the beautiful freshness of fruit of a cooler year and the structure and dimension of a hotter year from the end of the season.”
