Hi Ann,

There are exceptions to the rule and these are quite frequent when using 'an' .

I would say 'année' is used more frequently  than 'an'.

We say -

L' an 0 

Le nouvel an 

L'an 2000

'Le Nouvel an chinois 2019 est l'année du cochon'

is an example when talking about the same year using both words.

Not easy ....
