French vineyards on maximum frost alert

The co-founder of the Weather Measures company and agricultural meteorology specialist, Emmanuel Buisson would have liked to make an April fool's joke with the winegrowers who attended the Vintage Report on Thursday, April 1. “Unfortunately this is no joke. You have probably heard it in the media but a very significant wintery cold spell will be with us next week”.

Gel à Bordeaux : « on est dans le dur, la tristesse et la désolation »

Par ces mots, Jean-François Galhaud président du Conseil des Vins de Saint-Emilion résume le sentiment de bon nombre de vignerons du Bordelais et d’autres vignobles de France qui « ont pris cher » avec ces 2 soirées de gel consécutives, avec encore des températures de -2 à -6°C ce matin. Certains vignobles ont été très touchés et ont perdu plus de 80% de leurs bourgeons, notamment dans le sud-Gironde. Le phénomène de gel a été ressenti sur tout le département.

French winegrowers call for financial support from the European Commission

The release of European aid seems to be the wine industry’s priority since the start of the year

Jean-Marie Fabre (chairman of the French independent winegrowers): We are asking for a proper European support plan. In many wine regions (Aquitaine, Loire Valley, Occitania, South-East...), concerns overlap. The closer we get to the 2021 harvest, the more the pressure is mounting. We have the tools, but we need the funding for them. The National Aid Programme will not provide the resources this year, as the allowance will be used, most notably for investment aid projects. A European budget must be specifically directed at the wine industry.

Frost strikes European vineyards

Reports of severe frost damage to vines in a wide range of European wine regions are flooding in. Chablis, the Côte d'Or (where Vincent Dancer's drone took this picture of frost candles in vineyards this week), Beaujolais, southern Rhône and Bordeaux all seem to have suffered – not least because the days have been warm, encouraging early vine growth. See this video from Katie Jones in Tuchan. Below, Walter describes the situation in northern and central Italy. See also Walter's follow-up and Matthew Hayes on frost in Burgundy.

France’s wine regions start counting the cost of April’s bitter frost damage

There’s nothing new about an April frost in France, but precocious ripening of vine buds earlier on in the growing cycle is becoming increasingly common due to global warming. Combined, the two have had a devastating effect on wine producers throughout France. From Bourgogne to the Sud de France, vine growers grapple with the catastrophic effects of this frost event which began on April 5 and lasted up to three days. LM Archer talks to winemakers through the country and gets a snapshot of how some of the major wine regions have been affected, as they count the cost.

Frost will have an impact on En Primeur pricing

Quentin Chaperon, director of sourcing and chateau relations at U'Wine, which has 500,000 bottles in stock, is busy tasting wines during En Primeur season in Bordeaux. By the end of the month, he will have tasted no fewer than 500 to 600 wines. “I don't feel the freshness of the 2019 vintage in all the wines, but it's a great, ripe, balanced 2020 vintage”, he said. Ultimately, he will select 80 properties out of the 300 released as futures in Bordeaux.
