2015 is the result of a vegetative season particularly favourable to the creation of great red wines in Burgundy.
The level of sunshine was exceptional, with a 10% surplus compared with normal.
Temperatures were 2°C above average in April, June and July and by 1°C in August and September.
Very dry weather set in already in March, but was particularly pronounced in July, when it combined with a heat wave to seriously slow down the filling out of grape bunches.
The few showers in August were welcome, to allow vines to ripen off their fruit without stress through lack of water, but too late to really swell the grapes.
This very dry weather explains the small harvest volume, but also the great concentration of the wines.
Tannins are well enriched, the result of perfect maturity accompanied by irreproachable grape healthiness.
2015 is inscribed in the lineage of 2005 and 2010, the other great vintages for keeping at the beginning of this century.
