Vincent Lataste Link in April

After several summer like days, April has ended with devastating night frosts. April 26th ’s new red moon cast its cold flame on the vines of Bordeaux with a clear and freezing sky (temperatures reaching -5°C )

Tale of the month : « As long as the red moon lasts, the fruits fortunes will be up the air »

In the vineyard

The frosted vines are particularly fragile. The vineyard will need a lot of protection and attention all along now. We will rely on natural products such as suffer and copper but also on clays and some plant extracts: nettle, comfrey, willow, valerian, etc...

In the winery

In april we have racked our 2015 vintage and filled our barrels with the 2016 Vintage.
Chateau Mamin 2015 ’s bottling will take place in june.
