Hail has been a rotten interloper this year in Burgundy. Three large storms have hit Savigny-lès-Beaune this season. Luckily not too much damage this time but Meursault was badly hit with losses in the order of 30-50% in some vineyards. My plot in Les Boucherottes in Beaune was hammered in the June 30 storm. Ahh, the joys of primary industry!
