After multiple warm/hot vintage, 2021 brought back “normal” conditions to create one of the best vintages for Domaine Stephane Guillemin. After a terrible start in the Spring (April) when 40% of vineyards were hit by frostbite, the cooler summer was ideal to let the minerality of the terroir shine. While 2021 was overall a vintage that won’t be remembered in France, it will be a fantastic one for White Burgundy.
