« Loire harvest 2021 (1) | Main | Visit at Philippe Pacalet (Burgundy) »

October 05, 2021



Thank you for your excellent reports; I have young hobby vineyard and always learn so much. I am sorry to hear this has been such a challenging year for the winemakers of the Loire. In the top photos of the Pinot Noir vines it appears that a lot of the shoots had already lost their leaves - was this due to mildew? Is there any concern from the vignerons that the mildew will make it difficult for the vines to store carbohydrates for the winter and have an impact on next year’s yield?


Yes indeed, when it's that bad, with few healthy leaves remaining, that's a concern I was told about once during these visits. I hope the consequences on the vines will not last too long in those cases...
