Millésime d'Or 1981 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 1981, the average yield per hectare showed a very low average of 4353 KG/HA. This is the third time after 1978 and 1980, which causes a serious shortage in production.
The output of the bunches is low following the very bad climatic conditions of the summer of 1980. Spring frosts destroy between 20 and 25% of the production. A very strong coulure as well as a significant millerandage lead to bunches of a very low average weight, around 60 grams only.
The harvest is sad because of the lack of harvest. The harvested grapes nevertheless remain healthy on the whole. The quality of this small crop is above average. Chardonnay is distinguished by the finesse and length of its aromatic constituents. Blacks from unfrozen areas have remarkable power on the palate.
