After a week of fog, the vines have let their coat of leaves fall to their feet.
A period of summer-like weather follows.
Repairing the trellising…
Any pickets in the vineyards that are too worn are replaced. The pre-pruning at hedge-height begins.
In the cellar…
Some assembling of cuvées : Bourgogne, Bourgogne Passetoutgrain, Savigny-lès-Beaune Les Gravains, whose bottling will occur just before Christmas… To be continued!
Some racking, barrel by barrel, for those appellations that require it during their aging: Echezeaux, Vosne-Romanée les Suchots.
