The years go by, they may have common points, but more than anything they bring a real variation of pleasure. Like in 2012, the summer in 2013 started under pressure from the rainy skies. After a winter which seemed to go on forever, a spring which never happened, summer miraculously arrived overnight. We were hot and the vines were thirsty… Flowering was difficult, but the intense microbial activity in the soils of our terroir and a sun drenched after season made for a beautiful qualitative harvest.
After 2012, the vintage year, we once again have wonderful and sensual wines in our winery. The olfactory characters are very different from last year’s which will give us many exciting blending opportunities. Yes indeed, in a few years’ time we will have the pleasure of tasting this vintage in the making.
During this harvest, with the whole winery and press team we wanted to celebrate our partnership with the beautiful and grand Champagne House Veuve Cliquot Ponsardin.
