A great success this year, with delicious, succulent, sweet, rich wines and, where there is a higher proportion of limestone, great purity, drive and elegance. Anne began picking on 7th September and finished a week later. She was not impacted by rain. “The 2017 vintage was very easy. No frost, quite simple – a lovely summer, no problems, no maladies, the potential for high yields, but we carried out a rigorous green harvest. There was a little, but not significant, blockage of maturity due to the heat, as the nights were quite cold. The fruit was very healthy – very little sorting was necessary, just a few scorched grapes. The wines are gourmands and rich – more digestes than 2015 – which was hotter.” Everything here is done by gravity and according to the lunar calendar. The wines are an ideal representation of Chambolle terroir, with fine, elegant and floral aromas and flavours, ethereal, energetic textures, and wonderful chalky/mineral tannins that dance over your palate like a ballerina in silk.
