Champagne Vintage 1981

There were adverse climatic variations over the winter and as a result of an early budbreak, springtime frosts ended up destroying 20-25% of the potential harvest. Coulure, millerandange and oidium added to the misery, with only 4,353 kg/ha being picked from September 28th onwards. This tiny yield came at a time when Champagne was already suffering from the low crop levels of 1978 and 1980, hence not many vintage wines were made. Nevertheless, the grapes and the resulting wines were of excellent quality. The Chardonnays were the definite stars, although the Pinot Noirs successfully married acidity and generosity, producing intensely aromatic Champagnes with promising cellaring potential. The best wines defy time and stand out with their finesse. They include Louis Roederer Cristal, Charles Heidsieck Champagne Charlie, Krug Vintage and Taittinger Comtes de Champagne.
