Bordeaux wine grower for Chateau Bauduc, Gavin Quinney reports on their vintage with these photographs.
Hail damaged vines at Cos d'Estournel. 45% of 64 hectares around Chai were hit 1/9.
Lafite harvest started 3/9 at their parcel in St-Estephe, near Lafon Rochet. This is about 14 days early. Unfortunately the region has received a significant hail storm and the race it on to pick the fruit in good condition.
