NEW VINTAGE 2009.
The year began with unfavorable conditions that lasted for some time. A harsh winter was followed by a mild and rainy spring. Flowering turned out to be difficult, and the threat of mildew was high. Storms in July raised fears for grapes’ health.
August, however, was perfect. Weather was uninterrupted hot and dry, right up to the harvest, with the unfortunate exception of a hailstorm on September 4 in Hautvillers, Verzenay and Chouilly.
The harvest began on September 12 in idyllic conditions. The fruit was magnificently mature and flawlessly healthy. The Pinot Noir grapes had surprisingly little colour.
