The year of all the troubles !

Le Lundi 30 juillet 2012

I even didn't want to check if 12 was a winning number in numerology, but it seems clearly not to be one in oenology !
All the diseases swamp on this still unfinished vintage.
After the unusual winterfrost, came a little springfrost, an ounce of hail, a storm of mildiou and a load of Oidium.
The two last diseases attack violently the vineyard and ask a watchfulness and constant efforts.
