marko’s 2018 vendange – le wrap-up…

Arlaud (Post) Vendange Conclusions, Friday 14th September 2018 – Sunday 16th September 2018 As my Paulee note concluded I slept a sleep of the very tired, up late, ageing vendangeur on Thurs night/Friday morning, shocking myself, as a normally very light sleeper, by only coming ‘to’ circa 7.00 a.m. to find practically all of the […]

Arlaud Vendange Day 11, Evening Paulee, Thursday 13th September 2018 I know its now ‘way after the event’ but something wants to make me finish my vendange diary completely. Ok, guess, in ‘pure’ vendange terms, my Day 11 words have finished ‘that’ diary but for me the ‘whole’ vendange includes my time on the Cote […]

Arlaud Vendange Final Day Casse-Croute break after Aligote - L to R Jackie, Cedric, Laetitia, Antoine, Aurore & Sandrine

Arlaud Vendange Day 11, Thursday 13th September 2018 And so to our final day. The inevitable tinge of sadness/melancholy for me that I’d soon be leaving this wondrous place, for which I have developed so much affection for over the years from first arriving in 2008. I guess quirky Morey-St-Denis is deep in my soul, […]

About to descend finish of Hautes-Cotes Chard 12092018

Arlaud Vendange Day 10, Wednesday 12th September 2018 By now it was definite that we’d finish Thursday, although how far into Thursday, and what was left to do, weren’t clear. There was also an odd mention of a post finish Paulee celebration (but not ‘that kind of paulee were one bring’s one’s own wine – […]

Beautiful Vosne Village grapes but should be Pinot Noir 11092018

Arlaud Vendange Day 9, Tuesday 11th September 2018 Was something of a relief to know Roncevie was finally behind us. I mused to myself over breakfast, and pre-departure, what we might have left (that I could think of), and as a result where we might be bound. A quick digressing word on the sunrises in […]

Arlaud Vendange Day Eight – Monday, 10th Sept 2018 Another day, a week in from our start, another day of Roncevie ☹ ! My original recollection some days after was that we finished entirely/at last in Roncevie by lunchtime but my photo timings remind we actually went on to circa 15.00 hrs before finally being […]

Chambertin from Roncevie woods edge 9.37 am

Arlaud Vendange Day Seven – Sunday, 9th Sept 2018 Another day, another visit (or two) to Roncevie ! I’m not intending to make this diary note ‘that’ long (hurrah I hear some of you say 😉) as there’s only so much one can write about picking in Roncevie over what would be spread across 3 […]

marko’s burgundy vendange day six…

By Gevrey La Justice - hmmm

Arlaud Vendange Day Six – Saturday, 8th Sept 2018 A largely Gevrey day here (excluding the already done first day Combottes). Morning started a little chilly with our return to finish Morey’s Aux Cheseaux from the previous evening. Our team numbers were enhanced by weekend availability which, for me, happily included my good Japanese friend […]
