Exceptional conditions give exceptional reactions. Therefore 2009 is one of the most premature vintages since the beginning of this century with flowering taking place between 23 May and 7 June depending on the varieties followed by the first colorations (Veraison) between 11 and 25 July. We also noticed that the organic farming methods we have been using in the vineyard for many years have shown results in 2009. The outcome is the perfect regularity in the development of the vine throughout its cycle.

Harvest started on August 28th with Grenache Blanc and ended on 28 September with the last bunches of Mourvèdre. The exceptional quality of Mourvèdre in 2009 showed the extraordinary potential of these vines that are over 50 years old and planted in the most northern part of the Appellation. Harvest was carried out in ideal conditions, minimal sorting and we were able to organise the crop according to the maturity of the different varieties. As usual, the yields at Beaucastel were far below the 35hl/h authorised by the Appellation of Châteauneuf du Pape with an average of 28 hl/h.
