First, we are very pleased to wish you a happy new year 2019.
For our part, we want this vintage to be as beautiful as the one behind us.
The year has started with beautiful cold days allowing us to work efficiently . With climate change, seasons can start earlier and it is important not to be late.
Fortunately, some beautiful sunny days allowed a quick pruning.
Winter is also a good period for wine events, the work in the vineyard is less important at this moment so we have the opportunity to show our wines in different places. This year, we were at the first edition of the Grand Bourgogne Hotel in Paris. It has been a chance for us to present our wines and extend our distribution in Paris and its region.
This first edition was a success and we enjoyed our participation.
In late December, we bottled some of our 2017, we are now preparing our fisrt shipment of these wines. The last bottling for the 2017 vintage will be done in February. All the wines will be available in March 2019.
This month quickly ended at the Domaine. What we plan next is the end of pruning, pulling and crushing the shoots trough February.
