In 1942, the average yield per hectare shows an average of 4200 KG/HA.
From June 9 to 21, a cold and wet period somewhat hindered flowering which began on June 6, resulting in coulure and millerandage, especially on the black grape varieties. July is a little more humid but August and the first two decades of September are superb, hot and dry.
The harvest begins on September 21 in the earliest crus (Côte des Blancs) and October 10 in the latest (Aisne). It usually takes place in good weather, with the exception of a few rainy days. The wines are good.
