Burgundy Vintage 2017
Côte dâ€™Or: excellent concentration and good
Many vines here are low yielding due to coulure (poor fruit set
which reduces quantity, but not quality) and some heat stress,
which may have conserved acidity. The summer was warm and
so the moderate crop ripened quickly and was picked early at
the end of August or early September.
Mâconnais: very good wines from the best growers.
It was warmest here and yields probably were at their highest,
yet the good producers controlled this and picked early to
preserve ripeness, making for very attractive wines.
