This latest vintage is very promising indeed, with good yields, although it will not completely make up for low levels of stock. After another year of surprising weather, September lived up toto its reputation and played its part to the full in terms of ripening the grapes. The nascent wines are already promising good things, with lovely balance and intense colors. The final figures for volume won’t be known until early 2015. However, initial estimates mark a return to normal for many producers, although there were a few disparities in some areas.
