Another exceptional “8” year!
The last days of the harvest were bathed in warm late summer sunshine.
From the first day to the last, the 27th of August to the 23rd of September, this harvest will be

These exceptional weather conditions have paved the way for a sublime vintage.
We’ve already sampled, analysed and tasted more than two thousand wines and are
delighted to share our first impressions with you.

Villages to present to you as the “primeurs” on the 15th of November.
