Harvests

the 2018 vintage so far…(!)

the 2018 vintage so far…(!)

Thunder, lightening, heavy rain and even the occasional rainbow in Morey St.Denis this afternoon. Well, it’s already April, and we have passed the the poisson d’avril so maybe it’s safe to ask about 2018… I was with Charles Lachaux in the torrential rain this morning, so I put the question to him; ‘Given the cold, […]

the château du moulin-à-vent view of 2017

Here, for your info, is a personal view of 2017 from the Château du Moulin à Vent. It should be noted, however, that their’s is a view based on being located in the area that was really brutalised by the hail in 2017. 95% of Beaujolais, however, had ‘normal’ yields and healthy fruit. Their results […]

the office today…

Just a stunning day today in the Côte de Beaune – perhaps in other places too 🙂 25°C was easily attained in the latter half of the afternoon, and whilst the colours in the vines might have been just that little bit better last week – we’ve lost some leaves and others have browned since […]

HCDN-Arrival

Monday the 18th was Marko’s last day harvesting this year – Saturday and Sunday were ‘off’ days due to a) the weather and b) waiting for the ripeness of the Hautes Côtes fruit – helpful for Marko as he was suffering from some man-flu. But Monday they attacked: Thank-you Marko!

2017 harvest – 19 september

2017 harvest – 19 september

99.9% of the harvesting is now over, only the late finishers of the Côte de Nuits (and maybe Hautes Côtes!) such as Damoy, Ponsot and Grivot seem to be unfinished. Even Marko de Morey finished his harvesting yesterday – surviving a weekend bout of a sore throat and heavy head-cold – so didn’t join us […]

2017 harvest – 15 september

Nuits St.Georges – almost a double rainbow 5 minutes later… Today was more like April – despite a dry forecast – the showers came blustery and sometimes heavy. There was even hail at lunchtime at Gevrey rail-station – but the localised nature of these squalls seems to have completely missed the Route des Grands Crus. […]

Our man in Morey is fully on-station this year, unfortunately his James Bond supply of electronics has let him down. But his camera is working, if unfortunately sans commentary this year. Photos from 05+06 September:
