Tatin domains - Dream and reality


Double rainbow on 2010

2000’s gave us beautiful wines: a cycle of hot climate year appears and help us to get higher grapes sugar levels with a good maturity.
2010 seems to follow the tradition. Climate seems to go back to elementary seasons: cold winter, fresh spring, hot spring with storms and nice end of autumn.


Autumnal harvest

So, this year, autumnal harvest is back from September 23rd to October 9th.
Grapes reach a nice maturity and titrate between 200 g to 220 g of sugar per litre, so an alcoholic potential of 12 to 13 %vol.
Last decade, reflexions about vineyard management were engaged and gave us good results. Our past efforts to regulate the vigour of the vines are successful, thanks to the grass plant between rows and to restricted fertilisation. These practises allowed us to reduce the size of the grapes and to reduce rot attack.
