Millésime d'Or 1961 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 1961, the average yield per hectare shows an average of 7500 KG/HA.
Flowering didn't always go so well. It was too sunny and too hot during this critical period of early June. The grapes this year were almost all beautiful grapes. Among the less beautiful grapes there were some millerandage in certain sectors.
The accidents came from an excess of water at the end of the harvest, particularly in the Montagne de Reims, which brought a little gray rot. It should be noted, as a characteristic feature of this harvest, quite large differences in maturity, which often required a second picking.
