Well, no 2012 Yquem...

Gutsy move.
No 2012 vintage for the prestigious wine maker.

“We tried everything possible, but nature didn’t give us a choice,”

Interesting view on the situation.

“I can see how it would be, on occasion, unpleasant for the other estates when Yquem doesn’t produce a vintage, but overall, in the long-term, it’s good for the image of the appellation,” said Lurton.

I kind of agree with the point that if you do _high_ quality wines, there might be years when things just do not align.
