Well, mainly…

A visit in Morey on Thursday afternoon, and unusually, I was early! So I stopped off for a wander around the vines of a particular part of Bonnes-Mares, just outside the centre of Morey. The ground was very dry, though today’s rain – luckily without storms – should have helped in that department.

Thursday’s weather was still hot in the sun but cooler with a strong wind. Today, the rain and cold hit. I suppose we needed a bit of balance, as 30°C for three days running is a bit unusual for the first half of May. Before the heat the vines were basically ‘average’ versus a normal growth cycle – but the heat had the vines growing incredibly fast – the cold (About 10° and wet) may have just kept them in the ‘average.’

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?

There is one response to “bonnes-mares…”

    Very nice pictures.
    It was an 86 Drouhin Bonnes Mares that was the root of my burgundy epiphany. Neat to see, particularly the rock under the Bonnes Mares sign and the bee cave.
