Why Big Red Diary?


Puligny, this afternoon.

The weekend in Switzerland was okay – half sun, half rain, but to quote an unsmiling vigneron in Puligny-Montrachet today, “The rain was much more consistent than that here!” Indeed, the TGV took me through many a flooded area this morning.

The vines look fine though, the first chardonnay leaves starting to unfurl from their buds. It’s such a shame to see all the herbicide-laced plots in Puligny though…

    Herbicides, with a nice cesspool of toxins at the foot of vineyard — yikes!

    Frost struck the vineyards of the Cote de Beaune last night. Volnay, Meursault and Puligny were all affected.

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