13 grape varieties....to pick!

Date: Wed, Sep 12, 2007 Wine Business

In Beaucastel we use all the 13 grapes varieties which are allowed in Chateauneuf du Pape. We pick each grape variety separately (when we think it's the perfect time) and we do the vinification also separately. Each grape varieties brings its own 'personality' to the final blend: · Grenache and Cinsault give warmth, colour and roundness. · Mourvèdre, Syrah, Muscardin and Vaccarèse have structure, ageing, depth of colour and firm flavours. · Counoise, Picpoul, Terret Noir, Clairette, Picardan, Bouboulenc and Roussanne provide vinosity and individual bouquet.

Tuesday Sept 11th, syrah and some grenache

Date: Tue, Sep 11, 2007 Wine Business

Well, we are really getting into the heart of the harvest now. First the weather is still amazing, very sunny, great blue sky and always this incredible mistral. I am not sure if we have seen such a string a strong mistral days over the last ten years! Second the team, we now have about 100 people harvesting so that when we think that a parcel is ready we can pick it quickly. And things are starting to get ready... we finished picking almost all the whites grapes last friday. We started picking some of the syrah in coudoulet de beaucastel and perrin reserve yesterday. We finished the syrah in vacqueyras and are also starting some of the grenache in perrin reserve... Grenache grape in Perrin Reserve Technorati Tags: 2007, beaucastel, vendanges 2007
