Production note

Budburst was delayed due to lower temperatures than average inApril (1.5°C cooler). Early frost events caused minor damage butonly in some Chardonnay blocks. Temperatures were then closeto average until fruit set, however, the ripening period was coolerthan average (-1.5°C in September and October) delaying harvest,which occurred during the second half of October. 2008 wasa challenging vintage in terms of botrytis, as it was the wettestvintage in 10 years. Consequently, extremely strict selection wasmade to only pick the best fruit, resulting in yields much belowaverage, but great tasting fruit being used for the wine
