2017: bursting with stunning fruit flavour
The growing season started with a bang with the vines budding very early.
At the end of April, frost struck the Bordeaux vineyard hard, sadly dashing some growers’ prospects of producing any crop at all. At Angélus, where nature was kinder, we were scarcely affected by this sad episode.
There on, everything went wonderfully well with excellent flowering followed by a very hot month of June, which provided the vines with the necessary energy and strength to grow superb grapes.
Summer was quite cool but dry, which favoured the preservation of fresh fruit aromatics and slow ripening.
As the end of summer approached, with its occasional showers, the harvest got underway -beginning on September 13th!
