The year began with rain, rain, and more rain. The Spring, however, was mostly mild and the rain finally abated, with the trend reversing and even leading to a shortfall of rain by June. Under these conditions, the vine was quick to show signs of awakening. The chardonnay came into full flower on 8 June.
The maturation phase was chaotic: while the plants enjoyed favourable growth, almost completely free of disease, the lack of rainfall worried the vintners until the end of July. However, the rain returned for the rest of the summer and the vineyard stayed beautifully green.
The harvest, which started on 8 September, was completed under ideal conditions and in less than two weeks. The weather was wonderful and mild, the grapes were healthy and clear. The chardonnay matured perfectly. The 2014 vintage shows a relatively sustained potential in musts, good acidity, and a promising aromatic profile, especially for chardonnay.
