dark skies over pommard and chassagne (thursday 19th)

I said the weather would change!

Light rain in Meursault on Thursday morning was followed by lunch in Pommard against the backdrop of a leaden sky to west. After an hour of rumbling and occasional flashes of lightening the clouds opened over Chassagne at about 4:00pm – heavy rain – it didn’t last too long though. There was a small amount of hail too, but they were quite small bullets – no problem I think.

There were pockets of flowering around the Côtes this week, but just about everything should be in flower by the weekend – that’s at least three weeks ahead of ‘the average’. Vignerons are already pencilling-in 20-25th August to start their harvest! I’m hoping for a cool few weeks in the summer because I’m going to a wedding in Scotland in the middle of August!
