Amazing. Just two days ago, we received our branded corks for the 2009s from Corsica. Two weeks earlier, we received our bottles. Over 3000 – 750 ml, 30 magnums and one jeroboam. Our labels will be printed on the 27th of this month (video and photos are planned). We begin bottling the 3rd of March, the day before my 30th birthday. I couldn’t imagine a better place to spend this time.
For our corks, we decided to get the best possible outside of getting the flawless set, which is just one level above what we purchased, though the price is 5 times the cost. The 750 ml bottles are traditional Burgundian, slender, but shapely. Most importantly, they WILL fit standard racking and won’t weigh a ton.
We are in the process of working out a few minor details for the 30 full case direct orders we received. These will all be shipped in wooden boxes, as detailed in the offer.
It seems like every month I’m reflecting on how exciting all of this is. This month is no different. It blows my mind that inside of three weeks, the wine will be in bottle…
