2016 was a very challenging vintage for Chablis. The winter was very warm (last time was in 1900). It didn't allowed the plant to rest much. The flowers appears early. Unfortunatly, it snowed the 26th of April. The frost took away a good porting of the buds. It was then followed by heavy humid temperature that creates conditions for fungus such as Mildiou to appears. That took away another portion of clusters. Luckely, the connsistent warm summer brought to a natural concentration what was left. A vintage were quality privailed over quantity.
