Jean-Marc Vincent

This is one of the best cellars of the vintage and warmly recommended for wines that offer excellent value for money.

Jean-Marc Vincent and his wife Anne-Marie have made one of their best-ever vintages. Indeed their white wines are their best so far – better than the 2014s. Coulure (imperfect fruit set) and some heat stress reduced their chardonnay yields, concentrating the berries and thickening the skins, where the structure and aroma resides. The quality of their wines is the result of many years continual improvement of a combination of grand cru viticulture and an amazing progressive development of cellar technique which came to a head in 2017. Yet Jean-Marc is never satisfied and always has new plans to improve something! Yields were about 40-45hl/ha for both reds and whites with alcohols of about 13%. Harvest took place between the 1st and 8th September, starting with the whites. The white wines are fermented in 300-litre barrels, instead of the normal 228-litre, to preserve freshness. All the wines are bottled with Diam corks.
