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

Posted on Posted in Domaine Rollin Pere and Fils

2016 Frost: Rollin joins Barthod as perhaps the worst affected by the spring frost. Production is down about 70%. They made no Aligotè and no “Ile des Vergelesses” (first time they haven’t produced this wine since they purchased the parcel in 1932). Also, they were permitted to purchase grapes for the Hautes Cotes de Beaune Rouge and Blanc, because his vineyards were completely damaged by the frost. Both wines were sourced from a grower west of St. Aubin near Nolay.
