Millésime d'Or 1969 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 1969, the average yield per hectare shows a low average of 6100 KG/HA.
June was rainy with alternating hot and cold weather and a few hailstorms, especially on June 15 when the vineyards of Mailly, Sillery, Verzenay and Reims suffered serious damage. These climatic conditions seriously disrupted the growth of the vegetation and delayed flowering, which only started on June 17 in the best-situated vineyards.
The 1969 harvest began on October 1. For the first time since 1959, a minimum of 9.5° was required. Due to capricious weather and poor yields, the harvest only lasted 15 days.
