Despite the dry winter, vines in the Roussillon benefitted from some rainfall during the
spring and summer, which made for a balanced vegetative cycle. Summer temperatures were lower than the seasonal average, which slowed the maturing cycle and resulted in later harvests, producing more subtle and more complex grapes. On the 8th September, a full moon phase and plenty of sunshine brought three weeks of beautiful fine weather. And like everyone else, we were therefore pleasantly surprised by the splendid month of September, which made up for any delay in maturity.
Beef rib with mixed herbs, roast pork, lightly spiced dishes, broad range of cheeses.
