A great vintage. The vintage 2020 was marked by precocity, from bud to harvest. Indeed the good weather sets from March until the harvest. Early flowering with a mild spring, t he summer was hot and dry (with a little lack of rain). Harvest started last week of August with an excellent health of the grapes.
Despite the dryness, the vintage present a great balanced with nice acidity. A promising vintage, with great quality.
