Good quality and quantity. Good structure and firm tannis, especially in Cote de Nuits
After an unsettled spring, flowering was late and difficult. There was some scattered hail damage. But the summer was dry and hot, with a little welcome rain in mid-September. Growers on the Côte de Beaune picked after the rain in late September. Rain returned while the harvest was underway on 30 September on the Côte de Nuits, but the healthy grapes resisted the humidity well, and there was little rot.
The wines are well balanced and rich, with sufficient acidity to ensure a long life. The Côte de Nuits may be marginally better than the Côtes de Beaune, but there will always be exceptions.
