End of a Busy Week

A beautiful scene this morning lifted everyone’s spirits after a rather chaotic week and simply seeing the sunrise on the Dordogne in front of the Chai certainly makes all the hard work worth while!

Today the second half of the 2008 Grand Chai Medoc was finally bottled. 2008 in the Medoc was a lovely vintage and resulted in very fruit driven wines with soft tannins and although a majority of Cabernet Sauvignon and usually a wine to give some time in bottle I believe this wine is drinking superbly now and certainly one to enjoy whilst still young.

Like a chefs kitchen the winery has been cleaned down spotlessly and all the equipment put back into their rightful places at the end of today ready to start again first thing on Monday. The weather is sure to be lovely this weekend so we can all enjoy a good rest, ‘bon weekend tout le monde’!
