It may be early to be making predictions, "but we have nice, big bunches and that means there is good potential for quantity,’ said Philippe Dhalluin, of first growth Chateau Mouton Rothschild in Pauillac. The next few months will show whether these predictions "bear fruit"--and if that fruit makes fine wine.
