Complete team (pickers, winery and cooking staff) Pictures have missed this summer to write articles, as family has extended... Lison is borned 2nd of July, she is starting a new generation in our family. Summer briefly... We suffered hailstorm in Volnay and Pommard for the 3rdfolowwing year. Weather started to get worse from beginning of July, with little rainfalls and cool temperatures. The main element to remind is East wind that has blown strongly from end of August until the harvest, which concentrated a lot the berries. We started to pick on the 12th by reds, then the whites from the 14th. No rain at all during 7 days! We have been very surprised by the lack of juice, despite a nice flowering. But the wind turned in a good way, as balances and pH were absolutely perfect, especially in whites, and very homogeneous between all the diferent terroirs. Strong peach aromas where enhancing at pressing. We are near 2010 in volume and grappe quality, but with more acidity. Again a surprising harvest, unexpected, as we love! And it is especially a year that will keep being important to the family...
