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:

2017 harvest – 14 september

Nuits’ Clos de l’Arlot , this afternoon… Although I ‘did’ Nuits and Chambolle yesterday, I’m a sucker for a nice view – so today, the team of l’Arlot were at it again, plus more again in the swathe of vines (Premeaux) south of Nuits close to Les St.Georges. As I pulled off the D974, direction […]

2017 harvest – 13 september

Chambolle today… The morning was pretty Autumnal and cold, so it was a surprise when it became a little muggy and 24°C in the afternoon – rain was forecast but never really materialised. I started my afternoon tour on the northern border of Chambolle-Musigny with Morey – where Marko de Morey was picking some Aligoté […]

2017 harvest – 12 september (home domaine finish)

There followed a very enthusiastic and global use of water-hoses – to many shouts of ‘No – not on my phone!’… Starting our day with the last white – a small parcel in Pernand-Vergelesses Les Pins – here just 0.2 ha in a high sector that was once predominantly planted to aligoté behind Sur Frétile […]

2017 harvest – 11 september

2017 harvest – 11 september

An overused descriptor, but really, practically caviar… Our penultimate harvesting day – and today was a grand cru day. We started with Corton-Charlemagne – and we had quite a lot too. There was a little rot to remove, but as all our whites go over the triage table that was no problem – many white […]
