Harvest 2009, continued

Finally, the harvest started on Monday at Haut Mazeris and, on Wednesday, in a vineyard we have in tenant farming in Saint Sulpice Faleyrens. At this rate, we are far from being done...

The last Merlots were picked at La Dominique, Fleur Cardinale and Haut Carles are going to be soon.
The long awaited ripening has finally reached our vineyards. The first vats which finished their fermentation at La Dominique already taste very good. It feels like the 1989 vintage and I hope we do as good, if not better.

This week will be decisive for us and especially next week for our Cabernet Francs and Sauvignons, as well as for the Merlots located on the plateau.
