This year, in the Médoc, the heat and drought gave small grapes with a high alcoholic potential and an acidity often lower than usual. The cool nights at the beginning of September brought back balance and the showers just before the harvest brought freshness and softened the Cabernets. As usual all the grapes were pressed immediately and each batch fermented separately. They repeated the experience of the 2019 with some precise and tense Merlot juices to see if they would qualify again during the blind blending... And yes! They did!
