Hail in Bordeaux by Hamishwm - written 06/09/2011 08:48:02
It is a very sensitive time for vignerons all around northern Europe at the moment. The grapes are on the final stretch for ripening. Harvest is taking place....or very imminent in most places. It is awful to hear that sporadic hail storms in bordeaux have wiped out vineyards in St. Estephe. It seems that Chateau Cos d'Estournel and Ch. Lafite Rothschild have been effected. They are now picking the hail damaged grapes as soon as possible, so that rot does not set in.
