The beginning of the year 2020 was marked by dry conditions, encouraging the vines to bud prematurely. The month of March began with an important rainfall before experiencing a period of great balminess, inciting a quick start to the vegetation. The heavy pressure from mildew at the beginning of the crop cycle was progressively counteracted by the hot and dry weather conditions. If the months of April, May and June were mild and rainy, the summer conditions were extremely dry with very high temperatures, causing a significant water stress. A rainy spell during the week of 15 August was beneficial for the vines. 2020 remains one of the warmest years recorded since 1994. The harvest was homogenous and of a high quality.
