#2015Loire: Pouilly Fumé – looking good here too

Some of the Sauvignon not yet picked on 25.9.15
Healthy grapes 

Apologies for this belated report on my brief visit to Pouilly-sur-Loire on Friday 24th September to catch on progress with the 2015 vintage there. By this Friday many had finished picking including Jonathan Pabiot, who had finished on Wednesday, and Masson-Blondelet, while Michel Redde will be finishing the next day.
