Yesterday, Beaune was a bit of a wash-out. They need rain – the vines – so no complaining!
Today I was in Chablis and St.Bris – a short week as Thursday is the Ascension holiday and they typically roll that into Friday too, hence, the short week.
Drier today – except when the thunderstorms hit! There was (I was told) a little hail in Beines. The forecast is not great for the next 10 days, which has the growers anxiously looking at the indicators for mildew – that was the big problem after the 2016 hail – and, well, the indicators are not that good.
Of course, I’ll keep you updated.

Oh, and a reader-contributor – Marko de Morey – alerted me to this headline – so beware if you plan to visit Beaujolais!!!
