The 2015 harvests were characterized by fairly intense weather conditions at Mas Janeil in Roussillon and at Château des Erles a little more to the east. In the Languedoc-Roussillon, the winter was milder than usual, but less sunny. Spring arrived two weeks early and temperatures in the Roussillon region rose above 25°C on 11 March. After a sunny summer and two heat waves, the harvest was slightly early for the white grapes, in optimal conditions. High temperatures led us to increase the frequency of ripeness testing for the grapes, in order to pick them at the aromatic peak, with the optimal balance between acidity, and sugars.
