Ghislaine Barthod harvested her small crop, 35% to 40% down on 2009, from 24th September over 5 days. She feels that the wines are riper than 2002, our suggestion for a comparable vintage. We tasted on a day shrouded in mist when everything seemed dank and dour, so it is more than likely that Ghislaines wines will turn out more lively and fragrant than reported below, when the structure appeared to dominate.

Ghislaine started picking on 1st October, for one week, bringing in grapes with a natural alcohol level of 12.5 to 12.8. The fruit certainly tastes properly ripe though there is a beguiling freshness behind to keep the saliva flowing. Volumes are a fraction better than last year.
