Since our last news in November we can confirm that we lost between 50 to 60 % of our crop in our 2021 vintage.
After a normal winter, we had 2 nights of frost in the first week of April, and some damages in our Petit Chablis, Chablis and 2 parcels of Vaillon. The rest of the Domaine was well protected with our candles and our new protection: an electric wire in Clos des Hospices.
At the moment we are still with our 2020, which is in our opinion a super vintage, with a good balance between acidity and alcohol degree.
We will bottle a small amount of Chablis 2021 and some Vaillon at the end of June and the rest in the fall.
Our main problem right now is to get supply of bottles, capsules and all dry good, as the prices are going crazy, with an increase between 20 to 25% !
Since February we are traveling again and we have many visitors from around the world coming to the Domaine.
Right now the vineyards are in great sanitary condition and the flowering period is nearly over, meaning an early harvest expected at the begining of September. The only thing who might now jeopardize the crop is hail,..let’s cross our fingers !
