Millésime d'Or 1938 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 1938, the average yield per hectare shows a very good average: 8400 KG/HA.
Flowering is slowly taking place. Coulure and millerandage are quite pronounced, particularly in the Côte des Blancs. The condition of the bunches is perfect until the day before the harvest when botrytis appears and progresses day by day; it touches about half of the harvest.
The harvest begins on September 28, thwarted by the peeling and the partial mobilization which precedes the Munich agreements. The wines are quite good.
