My ‘vintage updates’ seem to be becoming more of a ‘hail-watch’ than anything. Anyway, here’s the mid-July ‘hail-report’:
Yesterday evening there was a tremendous storm following a hot day of about 30°C. It seems from reports in so-far, that the Côte d’Or pretty-much escaped with a mere 50 millimetres of rain in about 12 hours.
Less lucky as you can see from the linked photo, was Bligny-sur-Ouche, which I think would be classified as Hautes Côtes de Beaune – if they still have some grapes!
Now those things have really got to hurt. Never-mind their grapes, do you think any of their cows survived?
