Grading vintages


 

Vintage Quality Guard Strengths Weaknesses
2017 17/20 Good A solar year that gave very ripe grapes producing wines very pleasant, of great finesse, flexible, elegant with fine tannins. They can be drunk young or keep 5 to 10 years. The quantities produced 45 hl / ha are normal after several years of low yields.
2016 17/20 Good

Good maturity of the grapes, very healthy harvest, great concentration, delicate tannins, these wines will be very elegant and can be kept in the cellar or enjoyed young and fruity.

The produced quantities are very small, about 30 hl/ha, because of the frost at the end of April that largely impacted our vines. Grand Cru Chambertin was the hardest hit with only two vats produced.
2015 18/20 Good

Mature grapes, beautiful materials, perfect balance, wines that can be drunk young or we can keep in cellar during 15 years.

Limited quantities 38 hl/ha, due to the hot summer and concentration phenomena.
2014 15/20 Average

Mature grapes. Very fruity wines, delicate, drink in their youth. A normal harvest in quantities not seen since 2009.

2013 16/20 Average

Fine and delicate fruity wines that can be drunk young.

Even a small harvest in quantity (38 hl/h) because the passage flowers in spring was difficult causing sagging and millerandage.
2012 16/20 Average

Soft and fruity wine that can be drunk young.

Very fine red wines in small quantities: down 35% compared to a normal year like 2009.
2011 15/20 Average

Fine and delicate wines, with a good fruitiness, wines to delight lovers of Burgundy wines, wines that we will be able to drink young.
