2017, a real Winter. Frost , mistral and now snow. A welcome rest for the vines.
With some poppy red hints
The first hazy days as a premised #Winter at #lameillaud.
L'Ameillaud 2015 Vin de Pays is scored 88 by the Wine Spectator and is one of the "16 Mouthwatering Rhône Values" according 7th James Molesworth's article of October 7th, 2016.
An opportunuity to spend a week around Christmas at the mas Meyeau, in this part
of Provence, with amazing winter lights and deep blue sky.
An enjoyable comment received a few days ago from the 'London Business School MSc 1981 Reunion in Provence'. Once again the Wine Tour was conducted by Nick, the owner-winemaker at l'Ameillaud.
Today starts our second week of harvest. On today's menu, Syrah and Grenache.
The weather is still very fine and so are the grapes!
Robert, Shelley plus children and friends accompanied Nick in a new Wine Tour treating different aspects of the vine management, followed by a cellar visit and tasting.
