The season begins with a mild and dry winter, leading to an early start to the growing cycle. A significant episode of frost occurred on the Chardonnay on April 5 then on the Pinot Noir on April 14, causing a harvest loss (30% to 50%). A cooling at the beginning of June leads to capricious flowering. This causes runoff and further reduces yields while concentrating the aromas. The hot summer induces water stress in certain places which delays the maturity of the grapes. Because the berries are small and few number, the sugar level in the grapes is naturally high but the lack of water helped maintain good acidity.


Planted in a terroir with very different natures of soil, we have to choose a style without underestimate the entire and even a little bit rustic character which corresponds to the wines from Pommard when they are young. We chose to produce an elegant wine with the vineyards located mainly in the hillsides (Chanlins, Refènes, Grands Poisots, Cras, En Moigelot et La Croix Planet). The nature of the soil is mainly brown and limestone. The grapes from several plots are blended in the tanks.
