Fleur de Pedesclaux, Pauliac 2014


2014 was a succession of totally different seasons. Mild temperatures and plenty of rain (our weather station registered a rainfall excess of 87%) caused an early beginning of the vegetative cycle. Spring was mild, dry and sunny and therefore we were 15 days ahead of time. We kept these days until the end of the flowering. Due to a pretty cold summer, the veraison was spread until mid-August. An amount of sunshine higher than 20%, the average temperatures higher of 2°C than a normal vintage and less rain : that was September ! Since 1900, it was one of the warmest month! This Indian Summer allowed the berries to get more maturity and concentration, their volume declining up to 10% per week.
