volnay, chassagne, santenay and even maranges…


Volnay – early!

Monday aside, which was typically misty for November, we’ve had lovely sunny mornings but then plenty of rain in the afternoons – particularly yesterday – that was heavy! But today – it was nice all day – I was even tempted to pull out my camera! The effect of the rain was that most of the pinot leaves have fallen between Beaune and Volnay, but further south, from Chassagne to Maranges, the leaves are clinging on, but not as tenaciously as the second-set grapes! The leaves of the chardonnay are still mainly in place…

First, Volnay to Chassagne:
 

Then a mix of Maranges and Santenay from that last half hour of light…
 

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