A warm week – it’s started with 22-23° but could be over 30°C by the weekend – but there’s a tricky storm forecast to get through on Thursday…
William Fevre will start picking on Thursday, same as many in Cote de Beaune. Other Chablis growers more likely next week

Although they are in a minority, things are starting to get serious now; Olivier Lamy has already picked his first vineyard, and Patrick Javillier will also start now for some vines. As Jasper notes (above) many white wine producers will start before the week is out, though many wait, still assembling their pickers, chewing the cud – or making sugar readings. But many are also building up their arsenal of facebook pictures for their fans – nobody said wines were just made in the vineyards 😉
Of-course, some are more photogenic than others!
