2017 in Burgundy was an ideal vintage. Early blooming, spring brought the right amount of humidity without excess. A Warm and dry summer without excess either. Harvest by hand early thanks to an early maturity of the fruits. A rare vintage that can be both consumed now and chave a long aging potential thanks to the ideal level of acidity.
