Harvest

The harvest starts by picking the young plants of Merlots on September 23rd, with the Cantenac Brown’s team. The old parcels of Merlots are harvested on September, 28th and 29th to finish on October, 3rd. The Cabernets Francs wait until October, 7th.
The weather is on our side throughout the picking season, which allows us to apprehend the harvest serenely. The Cabernets Sauvignons are beautiful. After picking the young plants and the first parcels between October, 8th and 10th, we harvest the old Cabernets from October, 12th to 15th. The grapes selected on the second sorting table after the destemmer are particularly promising. They are beautifully matured with intense red berries flavours. On the last day, temperatures fall to 5°C in the morning and 17°C in the afternoon : Fantastic! The colours will release even better !
The timing is perfect : The brutal drop in temperatures occurs the day after the end of the harvest.
