Millésime d'Or 1978 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 1978, the average yield per hectare showed a very low average of 3678 KG/HA.
The very spreading and late flowering, from the end of June to mid-July, took place in very poor conditions. The freshness leads to coulure and millerandage. A significant attack of gray rot is observed on the stalks at the start of flowering, which partially destroys a good number of bunches.
The harvest having started on October 11, ends around October 15, due to a very low average weight. Only a third of a normal crop has been harvested.
