Vintage Notes

2015 Vintage: An extraordinary year for red wines across the Côte d'Or. The mild, wet winter helped replenish water tables for what would be a very dry growing season. The drought conditions persisted from June through August stressing some vineyards, however older vines with their deep root systems faired better than younger vines. Leading up to harvest temperatures were cooler which helped to preserve acidities. Dry conditions lead to lower yields and the grapes to develop a thicker skin, which meant tannins needed to be managed appropriately in the winery to ensure balanced wines. Reds show great depth of color with rich structure, ample fruit and body, coupled with balanced acidities.
