2015 was a challenging year in Champagne... After a mild winter without frost and a rainy spring, drought set in from mid-May to mid-August. Nearly 10 weeks passed without water and with a lot of sun (temperatures reached about 35°C). From mid-August, temperatures dropped by 15°C due to rain. The return of dry conditions in the beginning of September ensured a healthy harvest, without mildew or powdery mildew.
To craft this Spécial Club Vintage 2015, we selected two of the best small plots in our village of Festigny for the particular richness of their Meunier grapes. These plots were respectively harvested on September 10th and 13th, with an average yield of 8.000 kg / hectare.
