A fine vintage from the beginning. Its development in bottle confirmed our expectations, acquiring that complexity and finesse which are the hallmark of great white wines. To be enjoyed now.
The four previous years had been late harvests; 1981 then, was the return to a classic harvesting date. The flowering went quickly and evenly, August was very hot and dry, and after a few rain showers in September, the weather was very good for the whole of the harvest, which began on 1st October.
