Millésime d'Or 1987 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 1987, the average yield per hectare shows an exceptional average of 11,634 KG/HA.
After the torrential rains of June, a timely upturn at the end of the month allowed for rapid and grouped flowering with, however, sectoral fruit set problems. The average flowering date is June 30 for the Chardonnays and July 2 for the black grape varieties.
The start of the harvest takes place between September 28 and October 10. If it starts under mild skies, the pickers will very quickly have to face storms, gusts and fog. The picking period is extremely long since 38 days separate the first cluster cut from the last.
