Old Mourvèdre – October 2005 – Last Day of our First Harvest at La Pèira (Terrasses du Larzac)

by La Peira

“Age appears to be best in four things; old wood best to burn, old wine to drink, old friends to trust, and old authors to read.”

Francis Bacon

On this October day, our thoughts turn back to our first harvest in 2005 at our old chai near Aniane. The video below shows the Mourvèdre harvest of that year (2005). We plan to release the first vintage of a new (old) wine: Matissat – a pure Mourvèdre bottled for the first time in 2007. Of that, more here.
