The 2019 Vintage

May 1st 2019

The winter of 2018/2019 was largely dry and sunny, with the exception of the end of April; but it was also quite windy and cold. Temperatures might have climbed to 22° or even 25° in the afternoons in late March and April, but rarely exceeded 10° at night.  At the end of March there was some frost damage in Saint-Aubin, Chassagne and Puligny, but, it seems, on the lower slopes only. Currently there is a threat of mildew. The development of the vines is normal; neither precocious nor retarded. We could do with a bit of warmth.
