Feels like springtime
A stroll in the vines sunday morning left this strong feeling that springtime has finally arrived in Champagne.
The wind was warmer, the birds singing their beaks to pieces and the light has already been different for a while.
In the afternoon we could even leave coats behind. First time this year.
The rows remain wet.
Mud will follow your footsteps wherever you move in the vines at the moment.
The rain has seemed eternal for months. And then came snow as well. Even the "Beast from the East" - the freezing cold wind from Russia - could not dry it all up.
Nice to announce that the bigger part of our outdoors are well prepared for the upcoming milder season.
The pruning is finished in most plots and the binding of branches is very advanced as well.
Now it will be up to the buds to show some action.
And according to those who come to the vineyards each day, they have spotted the change for some time now.
The buds are on the move. Can you see them growing too?
