Producer's notes: Like 1991 coming after 1990, this Great Vintage - as this is a Great
Vintage - may go somewhat unnoticed, after the celebrated 2015,
and in the shade of its dazzling southern cousin...
A certain heterogeneity amongst Red Wines, a gorgeous aromatic definition in the white Wines. All Northern wines will not necessarily be successful this year. The harvest was generous. Sometimes even a little too generous. The quality of some cuvées undeniably suffered, on some sectors. However, and as always, the “reasonable and serious” Vignerons produced superbly colorful, stylish, and mineral Wines, which ranks this 2016 Vintage in the elite of the successful Vintages. with full, juicy, and silkiest Wines !
Extreme ripeness for the Vintage - grapes harvested by mid-October. And, nonetheless, disconcerting ease and crispness. Immediate pleasure !
