2018 Harvest Reports


A Brief Recap of 2018.

by Elodie Balme.

For us, the 2018 vintage was marked by two different impressions. On one hand, it was extremely rainy and that meant a lot of mildew pressure. This also meant working the soils was very complicated and that our windows for treatment were very short!

On the other hand, we had an exceptional September and October. And despite the mildew issues, the dryness permitted our parcels to reach optimal maturities. The wines will be more complex than 2017 and not excessive in concentration or alcohol. I'm very happy with the final results.

That's my brief impression of this complex vintage (as it always tends to be ;))
