Harvest at full speed !


Weather has just been perfect the past week and ripeness has nicely evolved. Grapes are small, berries have thick skin with concentrated juice. There is no disease.

Today almost ¾ of the vineyards has been harvested. For the parcels picked 10 days ago fermentations are well advanced. The 1st tastings tell the future style of the wines. They show a deep colour, they are quite aromatic with flavours evoking black and ripe fruit with low acidity. They are seductive and have a style similar with the 2020 or 2018 vintage.

The volume is small, party explained by the size of the berries.

Another great year!
