New Listing. Price £250.00.
Although it was a good year for all 3 varietals, the Meunier grapes were of particularly distinguished quality, and they account for a historically high proportion of the assemblage:
- Pinot Noir: 48% (of which 22% red wine)
- Chardonnay: 26%
- Meunier: 26%
Disgorging: September 2013
Climate and Harvest:
The millennium’s last harvest was the culmination of a year of contrasting and often unseasonable weather. Winter brought an indefinable mix of rain and snow, cold temperatures and warm temperatures, sunny skies and grey skies. Spring was warm and free of frost but hail affected nearly 700 hectares of vineyards in May. June saw hot weather while July and August were stormy. Global drought conditions then prevailed followed by “tropical” weather at the end of the summer, with very high temperatures in early September alternating with quite heavy rainfall. The harvest was a time of near euphoria, as the bunches were very substantial and the grapes were ripe (10% potential alc/vol), healthy and abundant (19,000 kilograms per hectare!).
