From a contrasted year comes an unexpectedly elegantly charming wine. A year that first of all was marked by highly contrasted weather: after a heat wave in July, August witnessed violent storms of rain and hail.
A year that offered a contrasted expression of the grapes: the Pinots Noirs were exceptionally intense and impetuous while the Chardonnay was ready for a long maturation.
A year that obliged the winemakers to adapt: reducing the proportion of Pinot Noir compared to past years, thus reaching parity between Pinot and Chardonnay to moderate the Pinot Noir's intensity.
A year that asked for patience: the 17 crus that were selected to build the vintage (9 Grands Crus, 7 Premiers Crus – 8 Pinots Noirs, 9 Chardonnays) patiently waited 6 years in the House’s cellars to reach the perfect balance, and express the wine’s elegance and charm.
