The 2009 harvest began today 09.09.09.
The grapes are beautiful and the weather is perfect.
This vintage has the potential to be absolutely outstanding.
The first fruit to arrive at the winery early this morning was
Chassagne-Montrachet 1er cru Maltoie followed by Blanchot-dessous. Grapes are perfect.
We have accomplished four pressings today. W and I are going to finish the last press which is scheduled to finish just after midnight. A long, arduous day.
