beaune hail update


A jog through some sticky vineyards around Beaune; Grèves, Teurons, Reversées, Clos de la Mousse and Les Avaux. This low-slope, central part of Beaune – nearest the town centre where the hail was heavy – no damage – I could hardly find a single leaf with a hole in it, maybe just one cluster showing a hail impact in Les Avaux! Hopefully it plays out this way across all of Burgundy and beyond…

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

    on 3 july, we just had a short downburst of heavy rain, but no hail, just a few miles to the south, near meursault/pommard. otherwise, since we arrived in mid-june, the weather has been ideal, with vignerons (vigneronne) we spoke to reporting the harvest well along, looking to an early veraison and harvest (late august vendange?) it would be great to compare notes with you (and other burgundy lovers) over a glass (or two?) of wine during our stay in meursault through late august. cheers paul/julie messerschmidt
