Max took this picture last night. I think this was the first cloud that we saw all day! Fantastic weather with a cleansing vent du nord. Lots of clearing up work in the vineyards all weekend. The harvest here in the Languedoc will start soon (some whites are gradually being picked). Lots of grape analysis and chin rubbing and general decision making will take place over the next month. Although the lack of water is an ongoing problem and there are rumblings that this will reduce the quantity significantly, the omens are looking good.
