To tell you the truth, I have mixed feelings about July 15th, 2018 ... first the joy, following the victory of the French soccer team in the World Cup final, then the dispair when I looked at all the missed messages and calls during the game. In fact, shortly after 5 p.m., hail ravaged our vineyard. We said goodbye to almost 60% of our production in a matter of minutes.
The 2018 cultural year will also be remembered with historic mildew pressure. Château Paloumey being involved in the organic certification process, the 2018 vintage play with our team's nerves.
Fortunately, the quality of the 2018 harvest is exceptional despite the very low yields.
