time to start your 100 day countdown!

Update 25.5.2015(24.5.2015)billn

Pic by Olivier Lamy.

Floraison in Burgundy (flowering in Burgundy) – reported and pictured by Olivier Lamy today. He saw the first flowers today in Criots, Chaumées and Gravières vineyards.

Those are all chardonnay – the pinot is usually later to flower…

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

    So, Chard wise, say end of first week in Sept or smidge earlier applying the ‘rule’ 😉 ?

    Look fwd to seeing CdN flowering idc. Guess you might be on that triage table before I get to set foot in the vines for year 8 then ! Wonder if we might have a vendange break for one of those spiffing petit dejeuner this time 🙂 !

      Probably – the mid-point of chardy flowering won’t be for another 3-4 days, more as you go north. I heard of the first pinot flowers, also in the Côte de Beaune (Volnay) today, but realistically, the mid-point of flowering the Côte de Nuits isn’t going to be for at least a week…

    I believe you mean floraison not veraison when the berries transition from berry growth to berry ripening. Thank you for the terrific photos!
