This vintage stands out thanks to a winning combination: grapes with optimum maturity and great sanitary conditions.
Winter went by with a quite mild weather and spring wasn’t long to settle as temperatures rocketed remarkably. And temperatures continued to heighten until the end of August along with a supplementary amount of sunshine in June and July. In these exceptional conditions, everything moved very fast. The flowering took place quick and early in June, and the grapes began to ripen in the first two weeks of July. The only fly in the ointment is the dryness the vineyard suffered, which caused some damage: some leaves and berries were scorched and some millerandage was observed on the Pinot Noir. So, these phenomenon lessened somewhat the yields in the Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune.
Luckily, the great sanitary conditions in the vineyard allowed us to settle the harvest date with the best maturity as a single target. It also allowed us to keep more whole bunches during the vinifications which will give wines with greater complexity. White wines are very rich and expressive, with white fruits notes and a great aromatic pureness.
All in all, 2015 is already a scrumptious vintage!
