Volnay 1er cru "En Carelle Sous Chapelle" 2008

The vintage

Weather was quite tough with a cool winter and a spring and summer humid and fresh. It allowed the development of rot. Thanks to the north wind that came on September, 13th, the maturity was perfect. Cold nights helped to keep the acidity, and a dry wind stopped and dried the rot. We started the harvest at the end of September. 2008 is a great surprise, a very Burgundian vintage, with aromas that come from a late maturation, like 1978.
