Spotted – or rather first heard! – in Meursault Perrières today.
I’ve been touring the vines – some in reasonable condition, some are very sad – pockets of vines in Pommard and Beaune seem particularly hard hit, some have more grapes left than leaves! It’s early enough (the hail) that split and damaged grapes will have plenty of time to dry out and drop off, but the rest will need new leaves to do the necessary photosynthesis…
Plus a few views from this morning:
There is one response to “i can see you…!”
Luckily there is not a lot of sugar in the grapes now. So the risk of rot is low. Except for the vineyards that were pulverized, most producers I spoke with are saying as you do here that the damaged grapes will fall, and there is more of a harvest still left on the vines than we have seen in the past 3 years.
