Beaujolais Nouveau 2020 - May 29th 2020

Beaujolais, like Burgundy, enjoyed a great weather the past weeks. Spring began quite early and the vineyards have grown regularly since then. The flowering season is now over, it ended May 22nd.

The baby grapes are nicely shaped. There is no disease and the potential crop is homogeneous and large.

2020 is another early year, which means we could harvest around August 22nd and complete the vinification around September 20th.

Of course, the following summer weeks could impact the crop especially if we have dryness but let's keep positive as today everything looks great.
