Coeur de Terroirs

Domaine Labruyere Coeur de Terroirs  Bouteille
  • The 2021 vintage was characterized by variable weather conditions. Bud break occurred in early April, slightly ahead of 2020, but was followed by a severe frost episode in April, causing significant damage. Flowering, which was late compared to the last 30 years, occurred rapidly in June. However, unfavorable weather conditions in late June and July, with below-normal temperatures and significant precipitation, affected fruit set in some parcels.

    Despite a late veraison in August, the month experienced a temperature peak. Harvest began on September 18th at Domaine Labruyère, initially disrupted by rain but proceeding under drier conditions later on. The 2021 vintage stands out for its cool temperatures, notable rainfall in May, late June, July, and mid-September, as well as severe frost in April. Despite significant grape losses, two wines were produced: "Moulin-à-Vent Coeur de Terroirs" and "Le Clos du Moulin-à-Vent Monopole".
