breaktime for ‘Rose’

Update 31.1.2016(27.1.2016)billn

DSC09214I was driving up and down between Maligny and Chablis town between appointments today, and noted this lady at work this morning – but I had no time to stop…

When I returned for my first afternoon rendezvous, the horse was still at work but yet again I had no time to admire – curses!

Fortunately, after finishing my visit, ‘Rose’ and her ‘driver’ were still in place – though taking their mid-afternoon break from ploughing in the Chablis’ 1er Cru ‘l’Homme Mort’ – a constituent part of the better known Fourchaume 1er Cru. Given the extremely mild weather, it comes as no surprise that the ground is easier to plough than usual – so 12-14°C every day is not all bad news!

Thanks Rose! (and Cyril)

EDIT: Cyril is Rose’s ‘driver’ and, believe it or not, the vineyard owner is Charlopin-Parizot Of Gevrey-Chambertin – they have 5 hectares in Chablis by all accounts…

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

    Any idea where the name l’Homme Mort came from ?
