more (or less) flowers…

Beaune 1er Bas du Teurons on Friday.

We’re still not into what I’d call mid-flowering here in the Côte d’Or.

Although there have been flowers here and there all over the Côte d’Or, particularly in the perfectly located grand crus, but it’s easy to see that virtually nothing was flowering in most of Savigny over the weekend. Looking at the frosted vineyards – which is the majority of Savigny – I counted about 10 clusters per 10 vines – pre-flowering of-course.

I did a short tour in Beaune on Friday too – there’s more flowering here, but still less than a third of the clusters were flowering. Still we had a nice sunny afternoon on Sunday and Monday/Tuesday look like nice weather – much should be underway by then – I expect!

A few pics from my wanderings mainly in Savigny, Friday-Sunday:
