The grapes were ripe and healthy. Extraction was gentle with reduced punching-down to only extract the best tannins.
The wines have deep colour and silky tannins. There are intense notes of red fruits and a homogeneous and concentrated palate.
Winter was exceptionally mild and rainy.
In the Spring, very dry and cool weather seriously slowed growth. Warm weather returned at the end of May and vine flowering ended on 10th June.
At approximately 17.00 on 28th June, a hailstorm hit the parcels “Les Riottes” and “La Croix Blanche” situated around the village of Pommard.
Summer thereafter was very rainy in July and August.
End of August, thanks to the return of an anticyclone, grape maturation saw very rapid progression which compensated for the summer delays.
Grape health was at a very good level thanks to hot and dry meteorological conditions.
Ripeness analyses carried out on our parcels allowed the date of harvesting to be fixed for Sunday 14th September in Pommard and Tuesday 16th September in Meloisey.
