A very well saved vintage! Nature is amazing, as are the winegrowers. Prolonged period of rainy weather, combined with vines weakened by frost. Sunday work was essential to preserve the remaining crops. A wonderfully bright summer continued, with hot, dry conditions leading to mild stress because of drought and occasional sunny moments. The resulting wines are generally juicy and fresh, with good acidity and modest alcohol levels, rarely exceeding 13%. The reds have a very classic pinot noir fruit profile and the whites offer citrus fruit and a little austerity, resulting in a more typical fruit profile compared to 2015. The wines are curious in that the front of the mouth offers ripe and juicy fruit, the finish is undoubtedly that of a cool vintage.
