Maturity of grape harvest
It is important to show to the customers the impact of grape maturity on the taste of the wine. We harvest late on purpose to gain in complexity linked with a begining of over maturity; what we call a sort of oxydation on the the grape shouldn't be understood as oxydation linked to a bad cellar gestion. On the pictures herewith, with 4 harvest on each parcels (link to a real massal selection and no clones on the estate) we never harvest pict 1, but pic 2 and 3 and sometimes a bit of pic 4. This doesn't affect the ageing capacity of our wines.
