CHAMPAGNE, A DECADE OF GREAT VINTAGES

CHAMPAGNE, A DECADE OF GREAT VINTAGES

CHAMPAGNE, A DECADE OF GREAT VINTAGES

 

 

With a little over 34,000 hectares of vineyards, Champagne extends mainly over the departments of Marne, Aube and Aisne. The region produces more than 300 million bottles a year, a large part of which is destined for export to satisfy the many wine lovers all over the world.

 

Let's take a look at this decade:

 

2011

An unprecedented vintage both for the earliness of the vegetative cycles and for its quality.

 

2012

Excellent year for the Champagne vineyard. A vintage that is almost miraculous given the climatic conditions.

 

2013

A complicated year due to its temperatures but the wines are still very fine and elegant.

 

2014

Technical and delicate year (especially because of fruit flies). The resulting wines are perfectly homogeneous.

 

2015

A very nice year with a hot and dry summer which makes the juices quite concentrated, but fortunately it rained at the beginning of September.

 

2016

Some difficulties this year (frost, rain, hail and diseases) but this did not prevent the maturation dynamics and the quality of the grapes.

 

2017

Beautiful vintages produced and pleasant wines despite the heavy frost in April and heavy rain in August.

 

2018

In the middle of the harvest period, the returns from the winegrowers are very good. The exceptional condition of the bunches of grapes is partly due to ideal weather conditions for the vines. These sunny conditions led to a very good ripening. Very good vintage.

 

2019

Very good vintage in quality and quantity. Unpublished maturation dynamics.

 

2020

Champagne limited its production in order not to overload stocks, but the harvest was promising. It is a very good vintage.

 

 

After analysis, we are in the presence of a rather rare decade of great champagne vintages.
