The complexity of a terroir, the devotion of those who care for it, all to create wines of focus, balance, length and silk. A signature.
No one can make the impossible possible. In 1984, it all went wrong: leaf growth halted in May by torrential rain, rushed blossoming in June, ripeness reached in September, but in more torrential rain. They were such extremely difficult weather conditions that no work in the chai could undo the damage. The 1984 vintage was not up to scratch.
