December 18, 2009: Chateau Ragotiere under snow

This morning we had the surprise to see snow in our vineyard. It's an unusual landscape because of the ocean climate. Last time we had snow was in 2005.

Enjoy the pictures:




October 29, 2009: Fall colours



Harvest is finished except for the "Petit Manseng" which still carry on its ripeness under a great October sun. Our vineyard changes colours and shows differents yellow and ochre. It's beautiful. In a short time leaves will fall and we will start pruning.

A Budget Chablis

"Don't drink this one too cold: It's lean and crisp, with apple, pear and quince flavoirs that open as it warms. A budget Chablis."

All white on the night

"Chardet 2007, Vin de Pays du Val de Loire. Made from an incongruous-sounding blend of Muscadet and Chardonnay by Château de la Ragotière, one of the leading Muscadet producers, this makes you wonder why more producers don't try it. It has crisp, focussed green fruits, with a lovely tart minerality. I could see myself quaffing copious quantities of this with a plateful of oysters, or a bowl of moules. If you want to push the boat out a little further, the Muscadet is even better." The entire article of The Irish Times 2009
