New hail storms this weekend ! Here is a photo of an impact of the hail of 2009 spring, on the wood of this year. It was fortunately without too serious consequences, but it illustrates the violence of the shock and the fantastic capacities of the plant to cure itself.

" Thunderstorm in Mars fills tines and tinasses " says an old saying wine grower... Let us hope nevertheless that 2010 will not be just like this end of the week which saw lightning and hail come down on vineyards ! No damages in this period of the year fortunately but we get a little bit afraid while waiting for the "débourrement". We are completing the pruning and already with the beautiful days which preceded thunderstorms, grounds warmed themselves and the vines is crying.

At the Saint Vincent as it is said " the winter increase or decrease". It remains very strong for some weeks with alternations of frost, snow and showers. But a real winter is not to displease us. It avoids a too premature starting up of the vegetation and leaves us of time for our works of pruning...

2010, already... But at the moment, we think especially of our 2009 vintage. It is a millésime which shows itself in all respects remarkable, from tank to glass. We proceed this week to the racking: the wine is removed from its lees and assembled. Until then, every tank represented a different soil. After many blind tastings and tries, we determined the most harmonious assemblies. We are lucky that our various terroirs are complementary, but this year, it is a real symbiosis.
