This was a great year for some exceedingly fine Burgundy wines. The growing and reproductive cycles of the vines, from spring to autumn, went very well. Nevertheless, the skills of the wine producer came into their own with this vintage: the July weather led to the development of grey rot (botrytis), mildew and powdery mildew.
Flowering took place under good conditions, except towards the end when millerandage (shot berries) occurred. But all in all, July and August were all right, neither too hot nor too wet. And a few mild storms did nothing to prevent ripening. The 2009 grapes that went into the vats were in good health, with thick skins and perfect sweetness, and good overall balance.
It can be said that 2009 is a sunny vintage. All fruit was good in that year. The wines will be classy and elegant, very pleasant to drink. The Pinot Noir wines have the smoothness and nobility of the very great vintages.
A fairly unpropitious climate but this vintage is a fine one
