sunday’s hail in the côte de nuits – updated


The hail was largely a Côte de Nuits event. Northern Nuits, Vosne, Chambolle and Morey had virtually no effect. The flats of Gevrey were affected up to 20%, but not the hillsides. Fixin was more broadly affected – also at around 20% levels. It’s said (by Pierre Damoy) that despite containing hail, the heavy rain of Sunday was quite warm – mitigating the level of damage. The pictures above show the modest shredding of the leaves, which did a good job of protecting the south-facing bunches, but the north-facing bunches were more affected – the pictures above (this morning) from the Côte de Nuits Villages vines adjacent to Nuits 1er Clos de la Marechale.
