After a harsh winter, the vines began to open around April 15th with the output of grapes lower than last year. After a warm April, there was a cold and rainy May that delayed flowering until almost the 29th of May and even later in some parts due to a rainy, cold June. July was hot and sunny. Mild hail storms hit but with no damage. August weather alternated between cold/rain to sunny/hot days. Some clusters were removed that showed signs of rot to maintain the health of the others, a laborious but vital process. The harvest started under sunny conditions on September 14th but some plots were harvested almost two weeks later as a result of the varied weather conditions this season.
The grapes were vinified with semi-carbonic fermentation with 7-days maceration. Malolactic fermentation followed quickly to help to reduce the acidity and increase the roundness of the wine. Nouveau is bottled shortly after.
