Not an easy year for producers, with extremely challenging growing conditions. A very mild spring produced forward vine development but this proved to be a headache as frosts in April and hail in May severely reduced the potential size of the crop. Small quantities of wines were produced with the vast majority being used for blending. However, even smaller quantities of soft, elegant and surprisingly stylish vintage wines were produced. All the vintage Champagnes are now fully mature.
