Buds


As I was out for a walk yesterday in the vineyards of Dizy, attempting to replenish some vitamin D in a rare burst of Champenois sunshine, I took some photos of the emerging buds on the vines. They've grown quite a bit in just the past few days—this is a pinot noir vine in the vineyard of Souchienne, near my house. At least I think it's pinot noir. It's on a cordon, anyway.

Such a cool shot, I"m such a geek...that photo makes me excited about things to come, makes me think of Spring and makes me wish I could spend more time in the vineyards, watching the full cycle.

Are you sure that's a cordon?

Well, the thing in the foreground of the photo is not a cordon, it's the cane at the end of the cordon. But yes, it's a vine trained in Cordon de Royat.
