When we harvested our Ver Jus, we were able to see “terrior” or at least one of the fundamental components. The Brosseau vineyard is our source of Chardonnay and, for the first time this year, Syrah as well. A stone’s throw from the vineyard is the Chalone vineyard. This year they removed their old vine Chenin Blanc. While I loved seeing those old vines, the removal made it possible to see the soil unobstructed.
As you can see – limestone everywhere. It was an incredible site.
