With the launch of our new web site here is the latest news about the Domaine!
With the 2018 harvest which gave us entire satisfaction in terms of quality but also in terms of volume, we finally had the opportunity to rebuild our stocks after 3 small vintages 2015-2016-2017.
However, again in 2019 we had another small volume very variable following our different appellations, down between -15 to -30 % but still with a great quality though.
At the moment we are still working with the 2018 vintage and we have bottled a small amount of Chablis and Ier Cru Vaillon at the end of June. The rest with the Grands Crus by the end of the year or beginning of 2021.
At this stage, 2020 is in a good start: we avoided the spring frost and the flowering was done by May 30. The summer has been very hot but hopefully it has been raining mid-august. We will be starting our harvest on August 28th.
During the quarantine because of the Covid-19, we could manage to ship nearly all the reserves ordered by our clients around the world and of course we do not expect a normal situation before fall, despite some good news from many countries where sales online and by retail stores are very positive.
As for the French market, we are very keen to support our dear partners restaurants and retailers and we hope that the summer season allowed them to compensate for their losses and that their activity will get back to “normal” as soon as possible.
