Just before the flowers
Despite the endless rain we endure in Champagne, the grapes do develop.
From small apple-looking green little things a few days ago, we now see them slowly opening here and there.
Each little thing will open to let a flower out.
This is the next crucial step since the flowers must be pollinated for a grape to be developpned.
Some come rain, come shine... we believe, we have seen the rain, now we'd like some shine to finish this nicely.
The first flowers are reported now, we expect to see them in the days to come.
