Current situation in Beaujolais Nouveau
18.06.20142014, an excellent start...
The Beaujolais vineyard is doing extremely well. Winter was mild. There were no spring frosts and the flowering happened in a most homogenous way during warm, summery, breezy and luminous conditions.
The grapes are in a very healthy condition. There is no disease. The bunches are now formed; they are quite long with the berries being well aerated which is a sign of quality.
The yields are potentially high, a situation which has not occured for many harvests.
The situation today gives rise to great optimism and we hope to continue as such until the harvest which could begin this year between the 2nd and the 10th of September.
