Bué on 28 September 2009

The centre of Bué with its church

Am very busy putting together the December issue of Circle Update, the newsletter of the Circle of Wine Writers, so time only for the moment to post some shots taken in the vineyards just to the west of Bué which, along with Chavignol and Amigny, is one of the quintessential wine villages of the Sancerre appellation. Memories of a magical September harvest!

Bué is built in a steep thin valley with vineyards on three sides

Bué with the dominating and steep Clos de la Poussie to the left


Steep vineyards leading down to Bué with a procession of tractor, trailer and vans moving to a new parcel of vines

See reports on 2009 vintage in Sancerre here, here and here.
