Malos are going well

I will post an update tonight. However here are some pics for the moment. It is a great pleasure to go down into the cave and to hear the barrels fizzing with malolactic fermentations.

Cheers

  1. Hi Ray! Glad to hear that all of you are feeling at home. I had a question about the cellar, and this year’s wine. Do you have to stack 2-high, or do you have room for another row or two of 1-high barrels? Are you going to leave the 2009 wine alone until bottling or do you have to rack at some point? Cheers, buddy!

  2. Hey Chris,
    thanks for the reply! So, there are 4 rows in total in the cave. I’ve only really used 1 and a half rows with my 2009 production. So, there is a bunch of room to go with barrels stacked one high for two vintages even if I added a cuvée to my current production level.

    The wines are staying put until hand bottling next year, 2011. No racking, unless there is severe reduction. On that note, the Morey Saint Denis 1er Cru barrel that was reduced has now cleared up without any racking or additions whatsoever.

    Thanks again for asking!

    Cheers
