The warm Winter of 2018 prevented the soil to refill enough moist and set up the stage for a dry spring. Coming May, a lasting drought took place, followed by a very hot and dry weather in June. This created an opposite effect on the plant that went dormant due to exhaustion, stopping the maturing of the fruits. It resulted with problematic tannins, that stopped maturing while it started so well early in the season. 30% to 40% yield was lost, but the quality was very high. Although the thick skin could have been a real problematic for other vintners, Arnaud applied his signature finesse technique to make sure that he brings forth complexity and the terroirs, instead of a simplistically heavy approach.
Cote de Nuits, Bourgogne, France
Terroir “Les Brulees”, close to the best parcel Premier Cru les Saints Georges, in the southern part of Nuits Saint Georges. The parcel faces East and South-East. Its silty-clay soil, from the Combe of Nuits Saint Georges, is mixed with little reddish rocks (from iron pigmentation). Its depth is medium to medium high, and covering a sub-sediment of marl from the Bajocian Epoch (marl with Ostrea acuminata).
