The harvest is projected to start on September 13 for Valandraud Blanc and in the best case September 24 for the Merlot from our Château Prieuré Lescours. In the meantime, I made a quick trip to Maury to meet with my partner andone of our accountants as well as one of our 2 bankers.
It was also a good
opportunity to meet one of our loyal customers from Luxemburg, visit the
vineyards, taste the Muscat grapes, pick and eat a few figs and almonds. All
organic and very good.
I ate twice at the
restaurant-wine store Pichenouille, including one meal with Hervé Bizeul. We
drank 2 of his 2010 wines. They were both very good. Clos des Fées is
constantly looking for excellence and their wines, like ours, are evolving
towards fresher and more fruit. This is coming from picking ripe and
Each time I regret that
we have to drive 4:30 hours to get to Maury.
