Our Harvest 2014 : a challenge won thanks to September !
If the winter was rainy, spring was very good with an early flowering giving us hopes for a very nice vintage. Then, july and august were fresh and rainy. During summer, we lost our hopes for a great vintage. But, a “miraculous” month of september came (warm, dry, large variation in t°C between day and night) like an sorry for august. The quality of the harvest was ensured.
During the harvest time, one week-end was supposed to be very rainy. All depended on this week-end, if we would harvest the heart of our vineyard in the following week or if we would have the chance to wait for the best. But, this feared week-end did not happen in the west of St Emilion, just a few drops ! It was unexpected and such a great surprise.
With a stable weather ahead, we re-evaluated our expectation, had time to add extra hand selection, serenity to pick the parcels to harvest. Yes, this year 2014 was full of emotions !
We invite you to dicover the result of that 2014 vintage at “Primeurs Tastings” in St Emilion (30 Mars au 2 Avril 2015) or during the “Journées Portes Ouvertes” (1er au 3 Mai 2015).
