Why Big Red Diary?

volnay – not so still-life…


Yesterday touched 20°C in the vines. Despite what has seemed like a winter of consistent 10°C days, the vineyards are not particularly precocious this year – so-far at least – because the night-time temperatures have been ‘cool enough.’

It was a beautiful day in the vines, without the ‘April showers’ of Wednesday – so much ploughing is underway. I visited a few of the Volnay vines of Bouchard Père – their full compliment of over 20 tractors were hard at work yesterday – well they do have 130 Côte d’Or hectares to tend!

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