The 2015 Harvest. Uniformity and perfect weather conditions for a huge vintage.The cold, wet winter was followed by a historically warm, dry spring until the end of July. Some
welcome rain contributed to a perfect development of the ripening phase in August. Thus, the white
harvest started early September with superb maturities and healthy grapes. There was a magnificent period of Indian summer weather. A few spells of rain in early September and
mid-October did not harm the grapes' excellent state of health and the steady progression in their degrees of ripeness. Uniformity and perfect health are the vintage's key characteristics. This result is a truly sublime
expression of Malartic's mosaic of terroirs. Each plot has been able to reveal its full personality. The
rich aromatic palette has been enhanced by a soft and tailor-made ageing that reinforced the
expression of a very nice complexity harvest
