pruning time…

No not in the Côtes, at home!

Beautiful weather enabled a ‘useful’ weekend. Four trees completely pruned for winter, avoiding the garden sinking under the volume of falling leaves. In three weeks time there’s even a man going to come and ‘chip’ all the branches – I suppose that means I’ve time to ‘do’ another tree!

No notes from weekend wines, but with friends we got through another 78 Pucelles and 84 Charmes, plus an 08 Pillot Chassagne Clos St.Jean, a 66 Bourée Pommard and a 98 Clare Valley Shiraz. All drank very well. Now back to work!
