We are in the middle of the Primeurs Week here in Bordeaux and we are tasting the 2014 vintage. This is one of my favorite times of the year. The vineyard, which is usually a very peaceful place, is invaded by people from the entire world. Here, at Pichon Baron, for example, we will be receiving around 1300 people in 5 days from all over the world. It is a real pleasure to meet all these people and to taste the new vintage with them.
I begin this short series of harvest reports with the results of a day’s filming at Pichon Baron on the fourth day of picking. As is fairly evident, morale was high, after an extraordinary few weeks of perfect sunny weather that enabled us to harvest grapes in wonderful condition.
