Question: Preliminary 2023 Chablis harvest review?
Answer: Vendange 2023 in Chablis is completed. Your scribe was there and most producers are optimistic on the final results. Older vines especially are adapting well to the hotter Summer conditions and all vines benefiting from well organized canopy covers. Not the same frost issues reducing many of the vintages over the past decade. After a small crop in 2021 the 2022 & now 2023 have produced above average therefore helping ease the pressure on rising prices. Also the earlier picking times have been helpful to maximize acidity balance. Encouraging!
