CORNU: 2017 & 2016 Report on Consequences of Extreme Weather Conditions

Posted on Posted in Domaine Edmond Cornu et Fils

2016 Bourgogne Blanc: Because of frost damage to this white grape parcel, Cornu combined all his surviving Chardonnay from Chorey, Ladoix, and Meursault and made 8 barrels (usually, he would have had 30 barrels of his three different whites) of Bourgogne Blanc.

2016 Savigny Rouge: not made because of frost damage.

2016 Ladoix “La Corvee”: also not bottled in 2016; the harvest was too small, and the trivial amount of grapes harvested were added to the Ladoix VV.

2015 Aloxe 1er Cru: because of low yields due to dry conditions, Pierre blended the Moutottes and Valozieres into one cuvee. It is approximately 1/3 Moutottes and 2/3 Valozieres.
