Extreme weather over the past year has led to the smallest wine harvest in nearly four decades, although these same conditions favoured a good-quality product. The 79 million litres of red and white wine of the 2017 vintage – a decrease of 27% compared with 2016 – is the result of cold nights last April and of hot and dry days in August.
It is now widely known that Château Climens will not be producing a wine from the 2017 vintage having suffered losses of around 98%. Berenice Lurton explained that the frost damage had been “really terrible” and destroyed “all the buds”. Although a second budding did take place it largely resulted in foliage rather than fruit.
