Wines are in flower

Wines are in flowerThese days the plants are developing their solar panels in form of leaves. They deliver the energy required for growing the estimated 38.000 bottles of wine.
The fertilization begins soon and is facilitated by direct contact of seeds provided by the wind. (No bees required).
In the cellar we are preparing the bottling of Rouge Grande Réserve 2008 and Rouge tradition 2009. We are bottling June 3.

Pruning finished

Release of the Rouge tradition 2008This year the pruning has been unusually demanding. The hail storms in May 2009 hit the shoots and made a lot of wounds. Picking the right shoots for next season has been more difficult this year. The success of this work will show when we bend the shoots and fixate them at the low wire. Some will break; hopefully not too many!

Release of the Rouge tradition 2008

Release of the Rouge tradition 2008Rouge tradition 2008 is ready for sale in France at the winery and in Copenhagen and Skanderborg, Denmark. The wine is ready for the table and will cope fine; even with the demanding traditional Danish Christmas food!

Harvest 2009 completed

Harvest 2009 completedThe Merlot grapes were harvested Tuesday September 29. The Cabernet and Petit Verdot Wednesday October 14. The harvest was preceded by a long dry and sunny period, giving the grapes a perfect maturation. In fact we might have a record high alcohol percentage this year, hopefully not too high!

Replantation 2009

Replantation 2009All though mature plants deliver wines of distinct terroir because of their deep roots, there comes a time where the yield becomes too small.
After 37 years of service we replanted this parcel of Cabernet Sauvignon. The new plants are one year old and will not be delivering grapes for wine making before 2011.
The plot is south-west facing, elevated and well drained; a perfect settlement for the Cabernet Sauvignon.
