vendanges 2010

by admin on novembre 5, 2010

Harvest 2010 is over. This year has seen some good quality grapes as well as some good volume. We started the harvest at the beginning of September with our dry whites. Most of it was picked in our plot of Illats and Portets (Graves area). The semillon and sauvignon looked healthy and tasted very good. The sauvignon was first picked to keep the right balance between ripeness and acidity.

We waited until the 20th of September , then we started our first « trie » in the semillon in Barsac. The rain on the 4th and  10th of October helped the botrytis to spread, and the cold nights and warm, dry days pushed the concentration of the grapes.
