23-Aug – Harvest 2022 – it’s warming up…

Update 26.8.2022(23.8.2022)billn

Whilst the majority of domaines are still testing grapes and not yet committing to their harvest dates, I’m virtually stalking a few domaines that have come to their 2022 harvest date decisions:

Chateau Thivin – yesterday
Marcel Lapierre – today
Armand Heitz – today
d’Angerville – today
Chandon de Briailles – today
Lafarge – 29 August
Roblet-Monot – 29 August
Pinson – 29 August
My home domaine in Beaune – 31 August
Perrot-Minot – 31 August
Nicolas Rossignol – 01 September

In 2020, an even earlier vintage than this year, the whites were not the first to be ready – it’s looking similar this year too – so yet another year where we don’t have the opportunity to marvel at who will be the first in Meursault :))

Another point of interest for this vintage is that recent hot ones have seen harvesting only 90-or-so days after flowering – this year it will be more than the traditional 100 days. They are all different, just saying…

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