Crémant d'Alsace grappe harvest 2008

vpressoir.jpgLook at this ! the first juice of this vintage coming out of the wine press ! we started the Crémant harvest september 22nd with the grappe varieties Pinot Blanc and Pinot Auxerrois. A wonderfull week with cold nights, perfect to concentrat the aroms in the berries and sunny days. Some of these vinestocks get injured by the hail storm in july 2007 but are well know even if the yield is lower than 2006. In anoter vineyard we had a beginning of rot on the grappes (a lot of rain this summer) but  we sorted the grappes in the vines and the result is well. The 2008 team is very attentive "and works well" say Clément. "11 degrees for the Crémant juice is perfect". If the weather remains stable we will wait until 5 or 6 oktober to continue with the other grappe varieties. The story will continue later.....
