Beginning of the harvest at Château Quintus

1/10/2014
The first grapes have been harvested this Monday morning in our Saint-Emilion property. We have started with the merlots plants situated on the western and south top of hillsides, in the earliest parts. Berries have completely benefited from the exceptional weather of this September. Thanks to what is record sunshine, grapes are filled with sugar. Such a hot and dry September has not happened since 1961, 1929 or 1921. On this Monday evening, the first vat with a part of our best merlots has been brought in, and with it all the hope that we place in this vintage.
