Beaujolais Nouveau 2011

During July and mid August the vineyards have enjoyed a fair weather with a mix of very nice sunny periods and light rain.
The grapes are healthy with thick skins and dark berries. They have a good balance sugar-acidity, similar to the 2009 which is quite good.
We expect a very nice crop with a yield also similar to the 2010 vintage.
The harvest will begin this coming Wednesday making 2011 an other early crop.
We will give you our first impressions on the quality of the wines after tasting the first vinifications which should be nice and easy.
We expect wines to show dark colours and powerful fruit.
