The harvest of our white sauvignons will end tomorrow, and we may start the harvest of one single plot of young merlot (4 years old) which has suffered from the draught.
The other merlots will wait as long as the current weather remains stable.
Jane Anson has realized one of the first tastings organized with a bunch of the newly classified Saint Emilions. Valandraud 2009 won the race and was awarded with great comments and ratings (94-95-Highly recommended to Outsanding). Some of our neighbours and members of our informal club of Saint Etienne de Lisse based properties did well too : Peby Faugères (92), Faugères (91), Pressac (90), and Sansonnet (90).
