October 2007:

The harvest is going on, on a rythm really calm this year! The impeccable weather allows the grapes to ripen slowly: we just have to decide when to harvest! Berries tasting is an essential parameter to decide, and André's experience is necessary.
But all of this would be impossible without the flexibility of our pickers. We thank them!!

While the first wines ferment in tank and already show promising balance, the Gewurztraminer then the Riesling will be picked.

The fantastic late season gives us the opportunity to leave some blocks hanging, with the goal of picking some "Vendanges Tardives" (Late Harvest).
2007 is already to consider as exceptional!
