Millésime d'Or 1953 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 1953, the average yield per hectare showed a fairly low average of 5400 KG/HA.
Due to cooling temperatures, the flower, despite a fine start, lasted more than a month, from June 6 to 23 for the Pinot Noir and Chardonnays and from June 12 to 27 for the millers. This situation led to coulure and then, in July, a very significant millerandage in many regions, which caused harvest estimates to be revised downwards.
The harvest began with fine weather on September 15 and continued in good conditions under bright sunshine. Finely bouqueted, full-bodied, fresh, the wines will give, because of their harmonious constitution, a remarkable vintage.
