The 2017 vintage: an expressive vintage that is all elegance
2017 was a year characterized by alternating periods of warm and cooler weather. Following a winter that was cut short due to the arrival of rather high temperatures in February and March, cool weather returned in April, along with frost for the second consecutive year in a row that did damage in the Chablis region. The spring and summer were warm and dry, allowing the vines to get back on track with a steady rhythm, resulting in an early harvest at the beginning of September. Apart from the frosts experienced in Chablis, the overall harvest in Burgundy was good.
The white wines
The Chablis are very typical of their terroir, with chalky notes and saline freshness.
For the rest of Burgundy, the wines are well balanced and highly aromatic with taut, saline notes on the finish.
The red wines
The red wines are very elegant, boasting highly precise aromas and flavours, the perfect expression of the typicity of their terroir. The 2017 vintage will allow wine lovers to delight in wines that are expressive and elegant even in their youth.
