After 3 consecutive nights of negative temperatures, a massive frost hit the Burgundian vineyard. The exceptional heat of the last few days of March had particularly stimulated the vine’s budding, making almost the entire vineyard vulnerable. In some plots with later budding, however, we hope to have some good surprises. We can already draw a conclusion on the 2021 vintage, it will be rare
