#2015Loire: photos of picking 30.9.15 @La Butte (Bourgueil)
Cabernet Franc at La Butte
Yesterday we concentrated mainly on Saumur-Champigny but on the way we had a quick look at La Butte (Bourgueil), who had been due to start yesterday but had obviously put picking back a day.
The Blots have a very efficient team this year, who are used to picking in Champagne. By the time we arrived around 10.30am Les Perrières had already been picked and they were on Mi-Pente. The grapes looked and tasted very good.
