The weather during the growing and harvest season was excessively wet and hot and in earlier times could have been disastrous. September rains and a hailstorm in St-Emilion resulted in patchwork performance across the region, after a promising crop had materialised during the sweltering month of August.
A very good vintage that produced low acidity, ripe wines which have matured quickly and are drinkable now. However, they should last a good 15-20 years. A good year for Merlot, which benefited from being harvested before the rains.
