Following a very mild winter and a rainy spring, flowering for Chardonnay was early at the beginning of June. Cool temperatures at that time caused partial flowering and low yields (20-25 hl/ha).
The fine weather and heat of the summer made up for the spring delay, enabling good ripening in August and September.
Given the small volumes involved, the harvest went very quickly, starting on 25 September and continuing in sunshine for 5 days.
The cool nights preserved the healthy state of the grapes. The wines are structured, solid and well constituted, with exceptional aromatic intensity.
They will need waiting for, because the 1995 vintage is definitely among those Burgundian vintages with great wines for ageing.
