2008 harvest in Montlouis@Jacky Blot

Looking back through a few photos – here are some from the 2008 vintage at the Taille aux Loups (Jacky Blot) in Montlouis. 

 Grapes on the sorting table

 Bunches of Chenin awaiting sorting

 Pickers among the golden vines

Hired vans are always of feature of the vendange 

 A big variation of ripeness is 
always a feature of Chenin Blanc

Signs of noble rot and perhaps passerillage, too
