wine report r.i.p.

I see from the Decanter newsfeed (‘click’ Decanter News at the top right of this diary page) that the Wine Report of, or rather edited by, Tom Stevenson may be no more.

vines & wines – yesterday in the côtes

Reaching for the sky...

Back from a sticky 35°C in the Côtes. In the Vines Vine-growth is very speedy at the moment; all the vineyards are looking like they need their first ‘hair-cut’ as the vines start reaching for the sky. The earliest flowering started on Wednesday last week, but more than 95% of the vines have yet to […]
