A very fine vintage of Pavillon Rouge, which we have long preferred to the 1978. From the start, it had a remarkable balance and flavour, which it has kept while acquiring more finesse. To be enjoyed now.
The weather conditions were very similar to those in the 1978 vintage: a wet spring, a hot summer in July and cool in August; and a very fine end to the summer. Once again, the grapes just managed to reach a very good level of ripeness. (The picking began 4th October)
