#2015Loire: Épeigné-les-Bois – James Marchais family and friends harvest for Crémant
Very clean looking Cabernet Franc but small berries and low yield in 2015
Destined for Crémant
Some photos from yesterday's family and friends picking Cabernet Franc in the vines of James Marchais (Épeigné-les-Bois) destined for Crémant de Loire. It is now an established tradition for the Marchais family to pick their Cabernet Franc on a Saturday. Last year it was much later – the first weekend of October.
Important to be comfortable when picking
