Harvest 2018 in Bourgogne - © BIVB /

The 2018 harvest, a bumper crop!

The harvests in the Bourgogne region drew to a close around 20 September, with what promises to be a great vintage.

At the end of September, the harvests which began on 20 August for the earliest-ripening plots came to an end. For the later sectors – notably the Hautes Côtes, the Chablis region, and certain Climats in Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune on the Côte – winemakers enjoyed excellent weather conditions, and the outstanding good health of the crop meant they could allow the harvests to stretch out over time while they waited for optimum maturity.
Judging by the smiles on the faces of local producers, one thing is sure: The future vintage has lived up to all expectations, both in terms of quality and quantity. Fermentation is mostly still underway, and the early signs suggest wines with good color and balance. The tastings which will precede the Hospices de Beaune Wine Auction at the end of November will no doubt confirm this excellent first impression.
