"Canicule" is here and our grapes have already reached high sugar levels. Vintages follow years after years and certainly don't look alike and that's why we love wine.
It has been a while since I have not updated this blog and I thought I would thank all the other bloggers who have talked about us :
Reign of Terroir : My very first interview...
Newpi : Organic shops in IA with passionate and very nice guys
K&L wine stores in CA : Note that the last two answers are not mine (and I certainly don't agree with those answers even if I respect them)...Also, please also visit this page from K&L and this is where you can buy online our Mistral
Critics Choice Vacation: A great blog to book your future trip. Susan who is our son's godmather and who is also responsible for our vineyard name, has written many times on us. To see her posts, click on Travel log and scroll down left hand side to France (on the CATEGORIES section) and then scroll down to Sainte Cécile les Vignes.
Musing from Red Bell Farm : Just beautiful and so romantic
John Livingstone: A very respected English writer and wine lover
Chateauneuf.dk : The best informative site on Châteauneuf made by Soren, a Danish wine passionate.
And for our Danish readers, here is a post from Jens. To see what he has to tell about Rouge-Bleu, scroll down half the page.
Diary of 1 : The very first blog article made of us
Essence de Provence : By our good friends Beth and Lisa who organise great lavender picture tours in Provence every year
Binny's : Wine stores around Chicago area
Blog d'Isabelle : A good friend from our village of Sainte Cécile les Vignes. You will have to read this in French (a good practise for those of you who want to learn our language)
VintageGardenGa l: We are at the bottom of the article
And of course, the one of my lovely wife Kristin who regularly talks about our ventures at Domaine Rouge-Bleu.
If I have forgotten one web article or if you have any suggestion, please let me know and I will update this post.
Early September, I make a special edition on the rosé (with lots of pictures and videos so don't miss it) since we will harvest in two times this year with a 10 days break between the rosé harvest (which need to happen soon before acidity drops) and with red harvest where we will look for the best possible maturity.
Back to the cellars now where I need to make room to welcome those grapes...
