2018 :Generous vintage

Vintage year review :

2018 vintage is marked by a wet spring and really hot summer at the end of July. Those weather conditions gave beautiful grapes with a great maturity. Harvest started on the 5th of September with is quite precocious for the last 20 years. 2018 is also to remember because it’s the first vintage by bying grapes for the Rion family trading company : Bernard RION SARL. Grapes from Pernand-Vergelesses and Chorey-les-Beaune are harvested on the 8th of September.

Tasting advice :

This fleshy and fruity wine is as appreciable young for its delicacy as after good years of aging.
