As I confirmed in my blog post on gfwineblog, the grape harvest for the sparkling Methode Traditionelle started on Monday 28 August. Ridiculously early (last year it was the 19 September) as we have had such hot dry weather over most of the summer. I popped over to an Anjou estate yesterday with some wine tour guests and witnessed the harvest of Chardonnay for the Saumur sparkling appellation. I tried the juice with the winemaker and he gave the acid level at 6.6% and the potential alcohol at 11.5% so just about right; it certainly does not need to be any more maturity. Funnily enough the winemaker missed the first day of the harvest as he was still on holiday!

  Hey ‘George’ Mindy Alex and Christina with the final photo shoot, with Saumur chateau and the loire river as a backdrop, to their epic wine tour of the Saumur appellation. Cab franc reigns supreme in the generic and village appellations of Puy Notre Dame and Champigny. They even got to witness one of the earliest vendanges on record with the pressing of the chardonnay at Vieux Pressoir for the methode ancestrale sparkling saumur brut. thanks to Virginie for a great tasting of the wines and a tour of the chai. Great. Will they be back?
