||The 2002 growth cycles was extremely dry. In fact, it was the driest vintage in 75 years. It was accompanied by a misleading impression of "bad weather" due to much less sunshine than usual. Temperatures were nevertheless above average.
||Harvesting is carefully timed, and on average six tries through the vineyard are undertaken each year to ensure that only the botrytized grapes are selected.
||The grapes are pressed three times and transferred to oak barrels for maturation over a period of about three years.
