They started on August 16 after our team of harvesters had been trained in a careful sorting in order to enter the cellar only the most beautiful berries.
We started with our Roussannes who are on the plot of Serres in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, then we continued with a plot of Grenache blanc located in the commune of Bédarrides re-entering the assembly of our Côtes-du-Rhône «Bécassonne».
We continued through the syrahs of Châteauneuf-du-Pape on August 17. We then took a break to wait for the optimal maturity of our grenaches that we start to collect on Monday, August 29 through the parcel of Cansaud which is located to the southeast of the appellation Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
We had two big storms on the nights of September 7 and 8 which will force us to take a break but will allow the grapes to finish their maturation in peace.
In the end, the 2022 harvest will have started very early but should end around September 25, in line with the last ten years.
