Millésime d’Or 1911 75cl
This collection and its history are dedicated to connoisseurs, lovers of great wines and beautiful emotions, and both to aesthetes, to explorers of style, those who created legends and good taste, in the world of beautiful things that enchant life.
The Millésimes d’Or collection tells the story of a century of champagne. The Pommery and Heidsieck & C° Monopole champagnes make up the largest part from the collection.
In 1911, the average yield per hectare showed a very low average of 1,600 KG/HA.
Early flowering is best accomplished. However, the very marked chlorosis at the time of fruit set caused the grains to dry out. This drought during the summer opposes the development of the bunches, the weight of which remains low. Diseases and insects are non-existent.
The 1911 harvest started from September 10 to 12 and took place in splendid weather. The maturity is ideal, the quality exceptional despite a low harvest in the vines badly treated against mildew in 1910. Several invoices will have limited the volume of this year with high potential: chlorosis, drought and a low output.
