This was one of Emmanuel’s toughest year since its debut in 1999 due to the devastating spring frosts. The average yields were around 10hl/ha! This release is made of 30% 2017 and 70% of reserve wine from 2011 until 2016. It’s usually the opposite 80% base wine and 20% reserve. The blend is made of 40% Pinot Meunier (a little more than previous releases), 40% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay. In terms of winemaking, the juice was fermented with wild yeasts in barrels and aged until August 2018. During the second fermentation the yeasts were all consumed before the sugar was, therefore are 5g of RS left that’s why in this release Emmanuel did 0 dosage. The R17 is a more creamy wine than we would normally see from Brochet, with a wider and richer texture. Still a lovely wine...Bravo!
