Vintage 2016: The weather conditions were very favorable for waiting for the noble rot in 2016. On the other hand, the absence of humidity, even of rain, limited the development of the botrytis fungus. The selection of Grains Nobles 2016 is thus obtained as much by the contribution of botrytis as by passerillage, a form of natural desiccation of the grapes which causes an increase in their richness (in sugar but also acidity). However, this is the first SGN produced on this Clos since the 2011 vintage. Adverse weather conditions (rain) had not allowed the grapes to remain on the vine long enough in previous vintages to reach the SGN stage. The passerillage has a very interesting effect on the wines. Fermentation is easier (botrytis has an inhibiting effect on the yeasts), the style is more fruity and there is a concentration of acidity, which is well perceived in this wine.
