The 2019 harvest is about to start at Angélus where our team monitors closely the ripening of Merlot and Cabernet Franc grapes.
Harvesting of Carillon d’Angélus plots will begin later this week whereas that of Château Angélus is forecasted to start next Monday 🔔
Ça y est, nous y sommes, les premières vendanges ont débuté aujourd’hui . 🍇🎉Merci à notre client @chateau_mangot de nous faire confiance et à @france3aquitaine d’être présents pour immortaliser ce moment ! 🤗
🇫🇷 Retour en images sur la suite du processus de vendanges de nos blancs 😉😊 Quand tu vidanges le garde vins dans le pressoir ... les odeurs t'envahissent 😊
Nous avions oublié de mettre un filtre dans le garde vins, donc le pressoir nous sert de filtre géant !!! 😉
#toujoursunesolution 🇬🇧 we continue to talk about our white grapes harvest 😉😊 When you drain the wine store in the wine press ... smells invade you 😊
We'd forgotten to put a filter in the wine store so the wine press is like a giant filter !!! 😉
We brought ourselves a little souvenir from Saint-Émilion. This town has a long history with macarons, with a recipe dating back to 1620. Originally it was a religious confection, made by Ursuline sisters at the local monastery. This bakery claims to use the nuns' original recipe, which is quite different from the well-known Parisian macarons. I don't know whether that's true, but they're damn tasty!
Image description: I'm holding a traditional macaron stuck on a square piece of paper in my left hand. Behind the macaron is a blue and white box with religious imagery and texts. The box stands on a wooden banister and there's foliage in the background.
The definition of Sunday Funday: Wine, cheese and macarons against a sunny vineyard backdrop. 🍇🍷🇨🇵 A French person also told us we had brighter complexions than she expected of Scottish people, so that was nice I guess. #bordeaux#saintemilion#Scotlandisnotsepiatoned
Finding the prettiest streets in the cutest French towns 😍 how lovely is this ivy covered façade in Saint-Émilion?
Saint-Émilion in Nouvelle-Aquitaine and the Bordeaux regions are well known for their wine. Driving to this small town, we passed lots of vineyards and wineries on the way! I wish we had more time to stop and sample a few 🍷
The main grapes used to produce wine in the area are Merlot and Cabernet Franc, although Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Petit Verdot are also used.
Saint-Émilion actually claims to having the oldest wine society in France - dating back to 1199!! They were also the first region in Bordeaux to export their wine internationally. About 2.4 million cases of wine are produced in the Saint-Émilion region every year 🤯
Are you a fan of wine? Are you a white, red or rosé person?
