The harvest goes on

3rd time the pickers pass in the vineyards of 2011 whites of Valandraud and Virginie. This is haute couture: successive passes to pick ripe grapes from the stock, which are, this year, very heterogeneous. Those placed in the high plots with very dry soil received a complete green harvest to keep the stock alive! The old vines have not yet begun.

The degrees are again this year, staggering. And the grapes and juice from the fruits are very sweet and taste really good.
What will the wine be? We’ll know in a month!
