Champagne Vintage 1998

A year full of events in the vineyards with cool and warm weather alternating. April frosts were an issue, especially in the Côte des Blancs, destroying some two percent of the potential yield. Even if weather upon flowering was variable, coulure (or millerandage) were ultimately not major issues. The harvest started with rainy weather on September 12th but the wet conditions only lasted a few days, after which sunny conditions prevailed, helping to rescue the harvest. A large 12,926 kg/ha crop was picked, which was sufficient in acidity and above average in ripeness. It is tough to generalize this harvest, as the quality has proved to be variable. The best wines have elegance and freshness, whereas the worst examples are dull and have evolved quickly. Taittinger Comtes de Champagne, Piper-Heidsieck Rare magnum and Laurent-Perrier Alexandra Rosé are amongst the vintage's very finest.
