The year 2017 was with a contrasted weather, and for some french wine growers (vignerons), from Champagne and from other french vineyards, some vines have been damaged by climatic hazards. Hail and/or frost in Spring damaged beginning of chardonnays buds in Champagne AOC.Summer was scortching with storms at the end of August. Wine growers were a bit afraid and prayed for not more damages and a good harvest grapes. The manual cut of the grapes in Champagne area helps to choose the beautiful grapes and cut the bad parts to keep out the rotten parts.

Sugar content was good and the harvest has been good and began at the end of August and ended at the end of first week of September for the team of harvesters of Champagne Damien-Buffet’s House. Thanks God all ended well under the sun of Sacy !
