The result is great...what a good year!
                    [html_content] => 

That is exceptional! After this rich and intense year, it is time to get the result. The yield is great and the grapes are beautiful! Maturity is perfect with good aromas, deep color and silky tanins.

While we are harvesting our grapes, everybody is smiling in the vines. Led by Loïc, the crew of 30 pickers is in a full swing. Grapes are healthy so the sorting is very simple.

Everything is ripe and needs to be quickly picked in order to avoid overripe fruits.

We started with our parcels of Santenay 1er Cru Les Gravières White. At the winery, the grapes are directly pressed with the stems. Then, the must is cooled down and settles for 24 hours. The racked must is then filled in the barrels for the alcoholic fermentation.

With the reds coming next, we filled the steel and wooden tanks and cooled down the grapes during 5 days. After that cold maceration, the fermentation can start and we worked on the extraction of tanins and color with pumpovers and punchdowns. We keep the skins macerating and fermentating during 20 days and we will fill the barrels for the aging after that.

As usual, we work as naturaly as possible at Domaine Jessiaume. The fermentation occurs with natural yeast and we do not use tanins, enzymes or anything else.

Also, for the first time this year and after many experiment the years before,

All the red wines have been vinificated without adding sulfur.

The colors we obtained are beautiful and the wines have incredible aromas and structures.

The harvest finished on the 7th of September at the Domaine and the "Paulée" party was done this day. On its side, the vinification lasted for the whole month and the ultimate dig out happened on the 27th of September.

We are very happy with this great year and we would like to thank all the pickers and the team at Domaine Jessiaume for what they have accomplished during this period.

Wines are now ready for the barrel aging and we will closely follow this great vintage that is coming...

[slug] => get-ready [introduction_content] => Back from vacations, a walk in the vines gave us the possibility to check the maturity. Harvest will not wait for September... [html_content] =>

We are back from vacations after a 3 week deserved rest. It is now time to check all the parcels of the Domaine and start to analyse maturity samples. The sampling method is as follows:

We randomly pick 200 berries for each vineyard every week.

The berries are then pressed and sugar concentration, ph and acidity are measured. The results and the evolution week after week allow us to decide the date of harvest and the order of picking between the different parcels of vines. Also, it is very important to taste the grapes in order to check the aromas, the color and the tannins.

For sure, harvest will start in August for the Domaine Jessiaume.

We decided to start on the 29th of August and we contacted all the harvest crew to make sure they are ready.

Now it is time to start the cleaning of the bins, the buckets, the vats and prepare for the process of the grapes.

This period has to be well planned, the harvest crew is composed of 30 persons and they must know what to do to make sure everything will be fine. Loïc will be in charge of the crew this year.

Here we are, let's hope for a great harvest!
