Blending day

the measuring vat – seen here VERY full – the winemaker loves risk / fears nothing

Today was blending day!  Today the small vats, neatly marked with the name of individual plots and varieties were emptied and pumped through the measuring vat – and then were blended to create one of the wines you know and love.  In this case, Oiseau 2011.

These are the Oiseau 2011 vats – the big ones you can just see in the background of the second photo. The wine has been blended and the vats are full. It smelled GOOD in the winery today!!
