Millésime d'Or 1990 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 1990, the average yield per hectare shows an exceptional average of 11,963 KG/HA.
Low temperatures, rain and reduced light lead to coulure and millerandage. However, the very high number of bunches and their large structure make it possible to avoid the worst.
The start of the harvest takes place between September 11 and 20 and, as in 1989, a second harvest is possible in the second half of October.
