After multiple warm/hot vintage, 2021 brought back “cooler” conditions to create a very typical Burgundy Vintage for Maison Arnaud Boue. After a terrible start in the Spring (April) where 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, the Southern exposition of the estate brought a consistent source of light and mild temperature to allow an extremely well-balanced wine. A niche vintage, for true Burgundy wine lovers!
