A trip today to look at the upcoming 2012 Sauternes harvest was a very pleasant surprise!
I’d been down last week and didn’t film anything as, frankly, everyone was feeling pretty down. A difficult year looked set to end without any botrytis but, as the following video clip shows, a lot can change in a week.
There is now some hope for a good late harvest if the new moon next Monday brings better weather. Bill Blatch
PS Forgive my getting the date wrong in the video – this was actually filmed today the 10th October!
