Though we did frost twice in late-April, we had less losses than 2016. Sadly, it was our single parcels that suffered the most: Bonnes Blanches, Initial Bb, Savennières and Rouchefer. The juices are of very high quality and are fermenting well: the Chenins are aromatic and vivacious, the Grolleau is juicy and the Cabernets are powerful.
Magic of Juju will make its triumphant return, and new cuvées may see the light of day. The harvest went well with a motivated, hardworking team.
