Flowering Begins


It's been damp and dreary here in Champagne, meaning that I haven't had much motivation for going out into the vines over the past few days. I finally did so yesterday afternoon, and found... flowers! Here's a photo of some nascent chardonnay in Ambonnay.

Counting one hundred days from now puts the Champagne harvest in mid-September. Let's hope for positive conditions between now and then.
