Harvest 2009

We started slowly this promising harvest, resisting the urge to harvest all seeing the neighbors who have already finished. They might have been right. It's hard to know, except that our grapes, still on the vines, could give us that perfect vintage, mixing 1989/1990/1982 if not 1998 because of my Cabernet Francs! It does not prevent Murielle Christophe and the others to dream while going around the vineyards 1 to 2 times while the vines changes overnight. 15 years ago, I would have already finished the harvest, today, we are barely starting. It’s like Formula 1 racing, sometimes we can skid off the road, but others can also certainly beat world records…
