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.
