Veraison (August, 11)

The work in the vineyard is now complete. It remains only paths maintenance (including lawn mowing), some shearing and let the grapes ripen slowly.
We are now in the sixth sampling network called "réseau matu". The regular rainfalls those recent weeks have not yet had a significant negative effect.
Potential alcohol is now an average of 6.5% Vol. Bunches are colored and do so quickly. The mid-ripening stage was exceeded, we are even on the some plots at around 85%.
