Palm Sunday in Burgundy
Author: Jasper Morris MW
It certainly worked in 1996 (north-east), 1997 (south) and 2003 (unheard of south-east). Those I remember – I must check the other vintages.
The Good News is that there was only a faint breeze on Palm Sunday 2009, and it came from the north-east, so perhaps we can expect sunny skies without undue heat. The vignerons, for the moment, are happy!
As you can see from the photo though, it has been a slow start to the year. No signs of bud break yet on the vines.
