2015 Exceptional sunshine! The year 2015 profited from completely exceptional climatic conditions with surplus sunning, very weak pluviometry and very high temperatures in June and July. The strong luminosity and heat marked this year with accelerated vegetative cycle and certain stages such as flowering at the beginning of June and ripening at the beginning of August were fulgurating.


Harvests : started on 3rd September for Chardonnays and on 7th September for the Pinot Noirs. 

TERROIR of 0.73 hectare plot.  Situated on the hill where the Grands Crus of Corton are located. The south-east facing vineyards and slight slope ensure perfect ripening. This sun exposure, combined with stony clay-limestone soil, is conducive to early ripening whatever the weather during the growing season.
