Without checking my notes, Paul, my recollection was that Clos des Epeneaux was an exception because it is on the northern part of Pommard, but Pommard south, Volnay, and northern parts of Meursault were very badly hit across the board. Moreover, the hail was in August so that the grapes had already formed (unlike a spring hail that just reduces the crop), thereby requiring meticulously working in the vineyard to reduce damaged fruit -- and at a time when most people were on or just leaving for vacation.The hail was quite localised. I believe the Pommard Clos des Epeneaux was largely unaffected. Curiously, I gave this very wine blind to David Strange and very impressively he immediately guessed the wine spot on, both wine and vintage, without any clues or prior knowledge whatsoever.
Other than some Ramonet and Lafon whites, I have no 2001 Côte de Beaune wines in my cellar (I may have at one point had some Savigny that has been drunk), but I have plenty of Côte de Nuits still, and they are very much up my alley. Last year, I had great bottles of Véroilles and Charmes from Barthod (yes, they do come around if you give them sufficient time), a really outstanding Grands-Echézeaux from Mongéard-Mugneret (not a producer I normally buy, but the wine was at such a good price on close-out), and an excellent Nuits-Clos des Porrets Saint-Georges from Gouges (another producer where the wines do come around if you are patient). Plus a Dujac Clos St-Denis that was extremely good but should still improve.
