Beaujolais Nouveau - September 18th 2019 update

The harvest is finishing in the Beaujolais in the last areas to ripen. The grapes are still very pretty, they have matured perfectly in the still summery weather conditions.

On the other hand, the first rackings have taken place for the first harvested plots, which occurred around the 10th of September. The fermentations went well without any difficulty.
Today we can taste the very first wines but obviously it will be necessary to wait for the end of the malolactic fermentations to have a more precise judgment.
The wines are colourful, have a style of very crisp fruit and lovely freshness, so very promising to produce a Beaujolais Nouveau as we like it; luscious and fruity.
