another gratuitous bud burst…


Yesterday Volnay, today Moulin à Vent’s (Jadot’s) Clos du Grand Carquelin – all here is clearly a week or-so ahead of the Côte d’Or, and apparently we are about 2 weeks ahead of a ‘normal year‘ – whatever one of those is…

Despite the blue sky and sunshine, today was markedly chilly – a strong north wind – it felt much colder than the 15°C on the thermometer. Beaujolais doesn’t seem to be suffering from all those bud-eating caterpillars in the Côte d’Or. I can see a day in the Mâconnais coming tomorrow – all in the interests of science – oh, and drinking wine! 🙂

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