Vintage Description

Burgundy can rejoice as the Bordelais: 2009 sign there as a beautiful vintage. Throughout the growing season, the vines benefited from good weather conditions, with sun and heat in summer. In September, maturity was optimal with good balance sugar / acid / aromas. The harvest took place rather calmly, all the grapes having been harvested at the appropriate medium through removal of the ban the harvest. Disease pressure, important enough in the spring, has been contained and summer weather conditions were then avoided the appearance of rot, thereby decreasing the risk of developing these diseases early in the season. White wines: The aromatic profile of a pretty auspicious future. The wines are structured on the roundness and magnitude, with good vivacity. Terroir differences fully play this year. Red wines: The deep and shiny dresses, aromas of red and ripe black fruit (a little premature at this stage), however, portend a good overall quality. On the palate, the wines showed good development, complexity, silky tannins. The feeling of fullness, supported by comfortable lengths, dominates.
