images from the beaujolais this week

Not super-warm despite many of the pics, yet it was a fresh and bright week in Beaujolais. There were a couple of evening storms with strong wind, rain and a little thunder and lightening, but no damage – more storms are forecast for Sunday onward, though. If the growth of the vines had been a little bit more forward – saw another 10 days worth – and not yet trained, then the wind would have done quite some damage by breaking off many shoots – but it wasn’t much of a problem this week.

Here, some images captured during my week:

    Glad to see you made it to Chateau de La Terriere (bottom picture), I love their Brouilly Vieilles Vignes Cuvee Jules du Souzy. Did you make it to Chateau de La Chaize? The Reserve de La Marquise is very good.

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