Following three years of conversion work, this was the first biodynamic vintage.
After a fairly mild winter, vegetation appeared in the first days of April, growing rapidly under an unseasonably strong sun and temperatures ranging from 23°C to 30°C. Flowering was precocious: by end-May it was completely finished.
The months of June and July were punctuated regularly by showers between spells of variable weather. A bit of hail affected the vineyard on 10 June.
August started with cool temperatures for the season, finishing with fine, hot weather which continued in September. These were ideal conditions for ripening the grapes.
As a result, the harvest started on 9 September and finished on the14th, all in brilliant sunshine.
Yields were slightly over 50hl/ha.
Vinification in the tanks was slow, finishing only at the start of 2008 for the slowest. In the spring, malolactic fermentation was homogeneous.
The wine is well balanced, while more and more depth and mineral tones are emerging. The aromas are fine and well defined, with lots of elegance, citrus and floral notes.
