Variety

Chardonnay

In 2017, the vineyards of Poligny were decimated by a severe frost that arrived in mid-April during the 16th week of the year. Valentin was able to produce only a tiny portion of his normal harvest, so he therefore decided to blend everything together and create just two wines for the year: a single red and a single white, both known as 'Semaine 16' (Week 16) after that catastrophic week in April.
