After a slightly late budburst compared to average, and early flowering, it’s now time for véraison in the Bourgogne winegrowing region.

The precipitation in July was mainly in the form of stormy showers, with varying levels of rainfall from sector to sector. The progress of véraison is therefore very varied: In some areas, at least half the grapes are colored, while in others, it has only just begun.
