Ballot-Millot

This high-flying, star domaine is making wonderful wines – more akin to Puligny than the old fashioned, stereotypical image of Meursault. There is never any batonnage and the wines always display incisive, tense purity, salinity and minerality. Charles Ballot enthused “In 2015 I thought I would never see such beautiful grapes. In 2017 I changed my mind! Un grand millésime. Volumes correct, very healthy, sunny, some rain helped the maturity. Acidity and pH are magnificent. The wines have matière, complexity, aromatics, balance – they are easy to drink, gourmands and easy to understand. Better than 2012 – less big and ripe. More complexity – more like 2014”. Charles began picking on 3rd September. “Yields were correct 40-45 hl/ha. Natural alcohols, without chaptalization, of 13 -13.8 degrees.”

Benjamin Leroux

Not only was it the biggest vintage in production terms, Ben declared that 2017 is so good, it’s the kind of vintage he would sign up for every year. Having avoided the spring frosts, the growing season was straightforward, and he began picking on the 30th August with the whites, moving straight on to reds. The quality of fruit was outstanding, and the wines have gained in complexity with age. Ben loves his whites in particular, describing them as “beautiful, with balance, purity, finesse and definition, rich and fine at the same time”, and the reds as “pretty, with plenty of appeal, and the fruit and body to support decent ageing”.

Christian Moreau

Whilst regretting the catastrophic damage inflicted by spring frosts, Fabien Moreau was very upbeat about the quality of the resulting wines. “The climatic conditions of the growing season were evidently dominated by 8 nights of frosts between 19th and 28th April. We had temperatures between -2 °C and -7 °C. throughout the right bank of the Serein. The worst of the damage was in that area – Fourchaume, all the Grand Crus, Montée de Tonnerre and Mont de Milieu. Without frost protection in Blanchots, Valmur and Vaudesir, we had yields of between 12 and 15hl/ha. For Les Clos, even with the protection of bougies (fires/candles), we only produced 22 hl/ha. After this, conditions were ideal with a good spring and a beautiful, sunny summer. We began picking on 4th September and finished on the 12th in perfect, dry conditions and the grapes were very healthy. The volumes in Chablis and Vaillon are correct, with only a couple of areas touched by frost – and I am not going to mention the Grands Crus again, other than to say that it is the smallest (80% down) harvest we have ever made! The wines are classiques – between 2012 and 2014, with a beautiful balance between acidity and concentration and more accessible at this stage than 2014 – with citrus rather than tropical aromas.”

Comte Armand

A fabulous tasting here. Paul Zinetti was very happy with the results obtained. "It was a generous vintage. The quality of the grapes was excellent, and it will be one of the reference vintages of the last decade in the Côte de Beaune. Extraction was carried out very gently, but I thought it was necessary to extend the macerations for 5-7 weeks so that the terroirs could fully express themselves. I also decided to shorten the ageing in oak to preserve better the fresh and digest character of the vintage. It is un millésime très Bourguignon and the wines have a pure, precise, salty profile. One can say that the wines pinotent bien".

Confuron Cotetidot

Yves Confuron said "2017 was a dry vintage overall – particularly from 14th July. The dry summer retarded the phenolic matutity and the vintage began on 15th September. The wines are very balanced and dense with aromas of red and black fruits."
