2015 Clarendelle ticks all the boxes for a great vintage!
2015 proved to be the hottest, sunniest year in Bordeaux, ever since records have been kept. A long, very hot and dry period was propitious to excellent flowering. This weather lasted until August, when rain finally arrived.
Showers fortunately alternated with sunshine in September, providing ideal weather at the end of ripening. The grapes were in perfect condition, with thick skins and good pH.
