The 2004 vintage followed one marked by a small harvest due to drought
conditions and extremely high summer temperatures. Starting with the flowering
(pollen count), technicians were surprised by the fertility of the buds (base buds,
tendrils, etc,) and the size of the bunches. The vines reacted as though they had
stored reserves in 2003 that promoted the development of all the grapes, which
explains why yields were very high, despite fairly severe thinning. 2004 can be
described as a classic Bordeaux vintage in light of high summer and autumn
temperatures, as well as the intrinsic balance of the wine's various components
(alcohol, acids, phenolic compounds).
