harvest: a few more notes


Starting with bit of an advertorial from François Labet at Château La Tour in the Clos de Vougeot.

We just started slowly and our forecast looks quite accurate. We picked yesterday the young vines replanted in the Vieilles Vignes plots at Chateau de la Tour.
We expect to produce about 50% of a normal harvest!!! fortunately the buckets of sorted fruits are quite empty as the grapes used are ripe and clean. This will enable us to produce a great vintage.
There will certainly be a Cuvée Hommage in 2012 !!
François Labet, this morning

Ça y est c est parti ! Gros score hier au nombre de parcelle , clos des angles , pommard fremiers , jarolieres , chanlins, volnay fremiets , cailleret , taillepieds , chevret …. Mais très petit score au niveau des raisins entre 12 et 18 Hl / Ha !!!
Nicolas Rossignol, this morning

The are some new notes here.

The rain of yesterday has abated for today, indeed it has turned-out to be a beautiful mid-20°s afternoon, but storms are forecast for tomorrow – just as I arrive – that will be good baptism I expect.

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
