KeeperCollection @KeeperColl @demilove hi look forward to your Qs on #SommChat - learn #burgundy

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q fr Shy #SommChat peep: how much reduction in general do you expect? @Ronceret21 #SommChat

Nicolas Rossignol @Ronceret21 @KeeperColl #SommChat we missed 30 % for 2015 so we hope to reduce slowly this miss in the future to have a normal harvest in 3 years

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q fr #Somm for @ronceret21 Can you explain the general tasting profile differences between #Pommard and #Volnay ? #SommChat

Nicolas Rossignol @Ronceret21 @KeeperColl #SommChat not a so big difference , but most of time volnay still a circle even with big tanins and with pommard even with soft

Nicolas Rossignol @Ronceret21 @KeeperColl #SommChat soft tanins they still separated from the rest of wine

Christopher Miller ‏@noblewines I remember there being bigger difference prior to 2000. Seems #volnay producers veered to more power #SommChat

Nicolas Rossignol @Ronceret21 @noblewines #SommChat after 2000we have a warmer weather and it give stronger (more mature)grappes in volnay so give bigger wines too

Christopher Miller ‏@noblewines RT @Ronceret21: @paoloscavino @KeeperColl #SommChat hi y'all !! any plans to make your site avail in english?

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q from #Somm for @ronceret21 on #SommChat - do you find that #Pommard #wine ages differently than #Volnay and if so how?

Nicolas Rossignol @Ronceret21 @KeeperColl #SommChat the difference of aging come from the kind of soil , with more iron you aged better that why Santenots aged well too

Nicolas Rossignol ‏@Ronceret21 @KeeperColl #SommChat and there is more iron the soil of pommard than volnay , colder weather keep more acidity also .
