The 2010 vintage was long overdue. In June, the rain predicted a difficult vintage for us, but the high temperatures in July put the grapes back on track. August and September are mixed. La Beylesse cuvée was harvested on September 25, ie 20 days later than 2009. This late harvest gives excellent maturity. The 2010 vintage promises to be of high quality. 2010 is also the first harvest of AOC Crozes Hermitage red grapes. The plot was harvested on October 9. We were among the last in the area to harvest. This allowed the grapes to improve and reach excellent phenolic maturity.
