At the end of September, it was in the low 80s every day in Bordeaux, wonderful conditions for harvest. The vintage looks BIG, and the excitement is growing every day! At Château du Tertre, we started the harvest on Monday, Sept. 28, and by evening had already harvested around one-third of our Merlots. The juice tastes great: high in sugar, with rich and long persistent fruit in the mouth. Get the full details, along with details on what we've been picking at Giscours and Haut-Bailly, as well as Caiarossa in Tuscany.
