Emmanuel Ogereau (Domaine Ogereau, Saint-Lambert-du-Lattay): "We have picked the Chenin for our Anjou Sec. The quality is very good but yields are very low. We lost 50% through the April frosts in our Chenin blocks. Furthermore, in the grapes that we do have, there is very little juice due to the prolonged drought since early July. Maybe we are getting 20 hl/ha. But the juice is very well balanced and precise.
"We will be doing the Premier Tri for our Coteaux de Layon tomorrow. We have some botrytis with potential degrees at 17/18%.
"We have much better news of our friends, the Sérols in the Côte Roannaise, who report an exceptional vintage having escaped the frost. The same applies to the Domaine Bérioles in Saint-Pourçain."
