2019 Cuvee le Bec
2019 got off to a late start due to the late season rains in May. The summer was mild with a foggy pattern in place most of the early summer, followed by a dry and mild fall, keeping harvest on track for a late start and finish. Crop size was similar to 2018 with a few exceptions. The wines all possess the finest qualities from a milder season, with bright acidity, and fresh, ripe fruit.
