The bouvreux?

In some years, during the harvest, we can find many small second-generation grapes, called bouvreux.

These “grapillons” (small grapes) contrast their raw green with the ripe grapes. They are also called (in french) “bouvériots”, “regains” or “conscrits”.

They will not mature, in general (or very difficult) and will therefore not be harvested (since the ban – prohibition – of the harvest will be restored before, anyway).

They are nevertheless considered as a sign of vitality of the vine and of important production the following year.

We then speak (in french) of a “belle montre” (we could say a beautiful announcement).
