Burgundy Harvest Updates – Saturday, September 20, 2014.


It is a foggy, misty, quite murky day in the Cote d’Or.  After two weeks of brilliant sunshine that has seen most of the whites safely into their wineries, Thursday evening brought thunderstorms that lasted several hours.  Lightning, thunder, and several significant downpours doused Puligny and Chassagne, but most of the fruit was already in.  Lesser amounts of rain fell in Volnay, Pommard, Beaune, and points north into the Cote de Nuits.

The rain continued off and on through most of yesterday, Friday 19 September throughout the Cote and was especially drenching between 10:30am and 3pm.  The gloomy weather continues today, and is forecast to remain until Monday, when we all hope the sun will return to ripen and dry the Cote de Nuits and the Grands Crus north of the A6 motorway, most of which have yet to be picked.

More to come tomorrow.
