Okay, it’s done: the Domaine’s white Châteauneuf-du-Pape wine for 2013 is bottled!
The procedure was resolutely respected: wake-up at 5 in the morning to prepare the machine, wine-tasting at 6:30 while listening to the neighbour’s cockerel singing away and then bottling until 4pm. And it all happened under a beautifully-blue sky! No, I can assure you, I don’t miss the Paris underground at all ;-). And as for the wine: fresh, refined, and a long finish. Maybe even more expressive than the 2012, and I’m sure that the less-trying weather conditions of 2013 had a lot to do with it!
