Loire 2012: Savennières: Ogereau@Moulin de Beaupréau
Last Tuesday we spent a couple of hours or so in Savennières and caught up with Catherine Ogereau and her team pf pickers in the Moulin de Beaupreau. We had been briefly through Savennières about ten days before when the grapes looked perfect, although not yet fully ripe. It was clear that with the recent unsettled weather signs of rot were beginning to appear. We were fortunate to catch Catherine before the weather really turned wet later on in the afternoon.
