Olivier Bernstein - 2017 Vintage

In January, the weather was cold yet dry, the sun’s rays gave us courage during the 2017 pruning season. Despite a vigorous winter and a rainfall deficit, the vineyards were able to restore their reserves for the upcoming growth phase. The early warm spring-like temperatures initiated a noticeable advance in the vineyards. Our plot of Champeaux began to flower towards the end of the month of May: the 2017 vintage promised to be early. The emerging grapes were numerous. This year, Richard and our team did several green harvest in order to reduce the number of clusters and to concentrate the quality.

Summer was punctuated by several heat waves, but luckily the few rain showers came at the most opportune moments, allowing the maturation to continue at a steady pace. The 10th of July was close call, a hailstorm just barely missed our Clos de la Roche!


After a tasting of the berries from the vines, the harvest date was set for the 6th of September beginning with our plot of Mazis-Chambertin. The clusters were loose, the grapes magnificent, and the stems had begun to turn down, every-thing was present for a superb vintage.

The beautiful maturity encouraged a short vat-ting (18 days) with a very delicate extraction. The 80% of whole clusters, harvest highlighted the fruity expression in our wines. After racking, weheld a tasting with our cooper, Stephane Chassin, in order to decide the best type of heating for our casks. We decided on a very light toasting to help bring out the subtility of the vintage.
After several months in the barrel, the result surpassed our hopes. The wines offer a delicate and airy nose composed of diverse fresh fruits. On the palate, the balance is perfect: the tannins are fine and satiny and the length is impressive. This is truly elegance!
