early morning volnay…


Today it’s raining, the only colour is in the market of Beaune – but yesterday morning – now that was pretty! Pretty enough in Volnay that I had to stop the car and take a few pics….

    Interesting to see that beautiful garlic at what is now close to a tenner a kilo. I guess it’s too expensive to import to the UK. Sadly the Chinese(often masquerading as Spanish) stuff we get instead has almost no pungency or flavour.

    Beaune’s market is very attractive but a bit expensive. A tenner for anonymous ‘ail blanc’ is very high. For the same price you get – in markets in Chagny, Chalon or Cluny for example – ‘ail rose de Lautrec’ which has its own AOC, https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ail_rose_de_Lautrec

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