official 2012 burgundy harvest volumes – ouch!

Update time, and oohh! what a lot of typing…

Anyway some shocking reading herein when you look at the (lack of!) volumes harvested in 2012 – mainly, but not entirely, in the Côte de Beaune.

Unfortunately, my page-width doesn’t allow sight of the 2009 harvest volumes which are generally much higher than those now displayed, and just to note that the 5-year average continues to plummet…

Of-course all the figures are quoted courtesy of the BIVB

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