Harvest 2020 : a great vintage !

Les cailloux, harvest 2020

The harvest 2020 has just begun, one week in advance in comparison to last year, one month in advance if we compare with 15 years ago.

The vintage seems to be a really great vintage. Quality and quantity are there. Color, tanins, concentration are truly present.

The team in the vines and in the cellar is super excited by this event.
As every year, we started with our plot of roussannes in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Then we harvested the syrah in Côtes-du-Rhône and Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
The fermenting process started very well with yeasts in really good shape.
Our new winepress helps us to extract the juice even more smoothly for an optimum result.

The harvest of the Grenache and Mourvedre will start mid September and will last until the end of the month.

See you soon !
