Harvesting our best domaine Pinot Noir

First days devoted to the Riesling grape variety as far as purchased grapes are concerned. From Monday on we decide to bring in without any further delay all of our Pinot Noirs from our domaine. We have increased the size of our picking team to about 30 allowing us to harvest all of our best Pinot Noir plots at once.

The weather forecast did announce from Tuesday on a wet front for a couple of days. This won't be too much of a problem for the white grapes but the reds need to be picked absolutely sound as they are. The 10 day weather forecast remains favourable after that brief episode.

It is more than one full hectare of our very best Pinot Noirs that have been secured in optimal conditions, perfectly healthy grapes with average ripeness of 13,4°. A great Jubilee Pinot Noir can therefore be expected in 2007.
