Bourgogne wines Glossary

Main branch left on a vine-stock after winter pruning. It carries the buds (generally 6 in Burgundy) or spurs from which the new year's growth will spring. In Guyot pruning, common in Burgundy, one 6-bud cane is left for the coming year's growth (tied in to a support wire), and one spur with 2 buds which will be the main cane the following year.
