Champagne Larmandier Bernier Harvest Times

“2015 is characterized by a hot and dry year throughout the growing season. Early September some rains just gave a little breath for the final stretch. 

Our vines didn’t stress much from this drought thanks to their age, ploughing and our land. Indeed, deep roots fetch accumulated water in the chalk.

The harvest should be good, we didn’t have any accidents during the whole season, other than a little bit of powdery mildew, quite a southern issue!

We will be starting picking the first Pinots Noirs around September 10th, followed by Chardonnays around September 12th.” – Sophie et Pierre
