THE 1996 HARVEST
The year was full of contrasts, with a variable summer. The wetter periods never quite made up for the earlier moisture deficit. Eventually, in the month before the harvest (which began on September 16th), spells of hot weather and northeasterly winds gave the vintage an unusual maturity.
Pinot Noir and Chardonnay white wines are blended with around 15% of Pinot Noir red wines.
