Actually, the summery hot season of the sold week boosted the development of the vineyard. What surprised wine growers and technicians. ” Hillsides turn green. The few days of delay noticed in the bud burst were widely caught up. An advance from 2 to 3 days compared with the ten-year average is observed in this beginning of week “, notes the Champagne committee in its newsletter of April 24th. In the region, the average stages ranged from ” 4 unfolded leaves ” for the Chardonnay to ” 1 to 3 unfolded leaves ” for the pinot meunier.

Explosion from the bud to 5-6 unfolded leaves in one week

The same thing in Burgundy. ” We passed within a week from the bud brust to 5-6 unfolded leaves in the most premature chardonnays. The average stage is now situated around 3 to 4 displayed leaves, whereas in the latest situations, we observe another two displayed leaves “, raises the Vitiflash newsletter of April 24th of the « Chambre d’agriculture » of Côte-d’Or.

In the Bordeaux region, vines were for the greater part at the stage ” 3 to 4 displayed leaves “. Some isolated and sheltered plots of land, in the premature zones achieved even ” 5 to 6 displayed leaves – visible bunches “.

In Paca, they were between the stage D ” brought out of leaves ” for the latest and ” 8 to 9unfolded leaves ” for the most premature.
