"Pierre-Yves Colin described the 2017 growing season as "one where we narrowly missed another April frost catastrophe though thankfully thereafter the conditions were largely clement and very warm without being too hot and dry. Toward the end of the season maturities were advancing rapidly and I originally thought that we might begin picking on the 5th of September but when the acidities began to decline, I advanced the date to the 30th of August. It just shows that you can never be completely certain of anything in this business because ultimately almost everything was picked before the 5th of September! Yields were good but not high and they seemed to be driven more by vine age than anything else.
As to the wines, I find them to be pleasant and seductive with very good terroir expressions. There is also good precision and energy and stylistically I would compare them to a hypothetical blend of 2007 and 2011." Colin noted that while a few wines were fined, none of them were filtered. Colin further noted that he added a few parcels and now owns and farms 7.5 ha directly and buys in the equivalent of another 4 ha where he is responsible for the harvest. He also observed that he is continuing to cap each bottle with wax as an aid in fighting potential premature oxidation issues. Lastly, the bottled wines were put there in December 2018."
