The 2 weeks in advance on a ten years average that we noticed since the budburst persist.
The growth and development differences between the 3 grape varieties Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier, don’t exist anymore
The vine’s health condition is good to continue its growth and the development of the bunches.

But let’s wait and see the summer’s weather conditions.

Let’s drink to celebrate this good news!
