Château de Vaucouleurs
A record rainfall of 1600mm over the year! (for memory 500mm in 2017 and normally 700mm on average per year). The spring very rainy was real favourable to the attacks of mildew on grapes and leaves. Despite our vigilance, significant damage at the time of flowering have strongly impacted (50%) our production potential. We couldn’t go back to the vineyards too soggy in order to protect them. Summer was mild and the pressure exerted by the disease was less. The small harvest could benefit optimal conditions for good maturation of the grapes. The harvest took place in very good conditions.
