Jean-Philippe Fichet is very excited with his 2013s, which he picked before the weekend of bad weather. He has also refined his techniques in the cellar, pressing the grapes for longer and settling out the juice less than before; both methods aimed at enhancing the vineyard character of each plot and making less ‘technical’ wines. A lovely range.

Jean-Baptiste reports hardly any hail damage in 2013 but the crop was nonetheless limited by cold damp weather at the flowering. He began picking on 26th September, with all the whites picked before the wet weekend. Malolactic fermentation took a little longer than usual but no real problems in the cellar. The wines will be bottled in December, or January for the Premiers Crus.
Jean-Baptiste Bouzereau began picking on 17th September, the same day as in 2010, and harvested over eight days. Overall the yield was around 30 hl/ha with the lower-lying vineyards such as Bourgogne Blanc and Meursault Genevrières the least affected. Even the badly hailed vines reached maturity and there was no rot to speak of. Indeed, Jean-Baptiste has found the 2012s easy enough to handle once the grapes were picked. All the wines were racked before the new harvest, and those from Tessons upwards have been returned to barrel but with no more new wood.
