Cellar master Jean-Pierre Mareigner said: “The beginning of 2006 was marked by a very dry spell and no spring frosts. A warm, dry and sunny June helped the flowering and full bloom was recorded in the 1982-2006 average (mid-June). Hailstorms in July, then a cool, wet spell in August, was followed by improved early September weather which stimulated maturation, resulting in the grapes being in prime condition just prior to harvest.
