2019 :A concentred vintage with potential

Vintage year review :

2019 is a challenging climatic year between warm, cold and humidity and gave a small harvest. Grapes were numerous but with a small juice amount and an effect of concentration. It gave a beautiful vintage with a good potential harvested from the 11th of September. Bernard RION SARL is growing with the Volnay, Volnay 1er Cru, Beaune and Chassagne-Montrachet appellations, besides Pernand-Vergelesses and Chorey-les-Beaune started in 2018. 2019 grapes from the Domaine and the trading company inaugurate the new winery ! 

Tasting advice :

A beautiful vintage since its early aging years that we can appreciate.
