The end of the year is coming and the past months have been busy in the vines. We have renovated a 100 feet stone wall La fin in our parcel of Santenay 1er Cru Les Gravières.
The restoration took 3 weeks to be accomplished.
We have also planted organic peas in the vines in order to energize our soils. Some experiments with organic nutrients for the soils have been set too.
This period is a good opportunity for tasting and shipping wines. The stock of the 2016 vintage is now very low and we are looking forward for the 2017 to be ready. We have bottled a part of it at the beginning of December.
The rest of the 2017 will be bottled at the end of February.
We will now start the pruning season that will last from December to March. The weather condition is not always good during winter and we navigate between vines and cellar.
Since there, all the crew at Domaine Jessiaume wish you a good festive season.
