After nine difficult months, due to the different stages of Covid-19, it was the weather and the very early ripening of the grapes that left its mark.
The early spring was marked by various bouts of disease, followed by hot, dry weather. The hot weather lasted until mid-September, with two major heat waves in the summer.
This dry period is favourable for the development of the vines, with the harvest starting on the 10th of September for Merlot and around the 20th of September for the Cabernets varieties.
The 2020 vintage will undoubtedly be one of the great Bordeaux vintages.
