The first leaves appear

It is an exciting moment when the first leaves appear on the vines each year, and then grow so fast that you can practically see them moving, particularly the syrah which produces an enormous amount of foliage.  The brave Grenache pine, that grows the grapes for our top cuvée La Croix, seems to be the first to appear each year – having a great aspect, and well sheltered by the surrounding oak trees.

The different wild flowers are popping up everyday and the cherries are in full bloom, throwing caution to the winds about late frosts!
