More harvest news: great year for Châteauneuf-du-Pape

The summer has been exceptionally sunny and windy in Châteauneuf (as opposed to some regions further north). They have had a bit of rain during the harvest but it has not caused any serious problems (it was rather welcome after the very dry summer). The producers’ federation expects it to be an outstanding vintage (following on the also very good 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2006). As Marc Perrin at Château de Beaucastel says: “The weather is fantastic. Very sunny and very windy. The grapes are very healthy and if things continue this way, 2007 will be a great vintage in the Southern Rhône.”
