Winemaker comments

Winter was slightly colder than in 1998, with budbreak delayed until around late March. During Spring temperatures and rains were within the norm, with flowering and growth similar to the previous year. Flowering took place at the end of May. The excellent climate during late Spring resulted in a better-than-average fruit set. A hot Summer without rain led to veraison one week earlier than in previous vintages, with very consistent fruit. Around mid-July, cluster-thinning wad carried out in the Merlot to ensure optimum ripening for the remaining fruit. Harvest started during the second week of September and lasted 7 days under ideal weather conditions; grapes were hand-picked and brought to the cellars in small 15 kg boxes, each lot separately.
