Paz Espejo : Prospects for 2011 « This year the growth cycle for all four grape varieties is two to three weeks ahead of schedule. The flowering of the Cabernet, Merlot and Petit Verdot was homogeneous and took place under ideal conditions. Drought conditions prevented the development of disease and we are delighted with the current health of the vines. The water shortage is not yet affecting the vines, but we will continue to monitor the situation carefully, especially if the drought continues. We can expect an early harvest this year. We are delighted to see a new confidence in our wines, especially Lanessan and Les Calèches de Lanessan, (our second wine) from merchants and clients alike. Our aim is to continue working to develop this priveged relationship with our customers.
