Piedmont, 2014

2014 was a good Piedmont vintage, with some erratic weather leading to irregular quality, but quality in some vineyards nevertheless. Careful selection when buying is therefore tantamount.

A cool, wet spring followed a wet winter, but then came scorching May temperatures that saw a good 'fruit set' despite the inauspicious start to the year. However, the weather turned very damp and cool again in the summer and prior thoughts of a bumper harvest were dashed. Those producers who delayed their harvest made the best wines for early drinking.
