It was with great pleasure that we started the harvest on August 21 with a plot of young Sauvignon. The grapes were hand picked under optimal conditions of maturity and aromatic intensity. All of our Sauvignons were picked up before September 3rd. The harvest continues with Muscadelle and Sémillon. “I consider these Semillons to be the most beautiful since I am a winegrower”

Les vendanges des blancs ont commencées le 28 Août et auront durées trois belles semaines en raison du décalage de maturité des cépages.
