- All's well that ends well... more or less. After an unusual winter- the hottest since 1900 for the period December/february- the early budding stage took place mid-april. « Black frost » on the night 26/27th of april damaged many young buds; our Beaune Longbois is particularly hurt. Wet spring conditions were followed by return of sunny contidions mid-june during flower . The maturing process was irregular because of extreme weather conditions. The grape harvest started on 23 September with Pinot noir. The sanitary condition of the grapes was good ; fresh red fruit aromas, well balanced in the mouth, delicate and brisk with good tannin potential.
