Plungeing the Pinot Noir down under...

With the potential of this year's estate Pinot Noirs, we need now to focus our efforts on the all important vinification phase. A few new barrels were bought for the occasion, from Damy in Meursault, one of the best cooper in Burgundy. In 2009 the wines have such concentration and depth that the wines will easily "digest" a fair percentage of new oak... Before that, there is still quite some physical work required to do the plungeings, twice a day.

We have the pleasure of introducing to you Nick and Conrad, our two interns from the Southern hemisphere, both coming all the way from New Zealand. They arrived in Riquewihr just on time to see (at last) a victory of the All Blacks in the tri nations and now tell us that the Kiwis are the new reference for Pinot Noirs ;-)
