The 2013 vintage @ Château Haut Bailly : a triathlon

The 2013 vintage @ Château Haut Bailly : a triathlon | Vitabella Wine Daily Gossip | Scoop.it

Most of the older Merlots were hit with coulure and millerandage. The first buds appeared around the 1st of April 2013, about a fortnight later than normal at Haut-Bailly. This late budburst was followed by a cold and rainy spring which delayed flowering one more month, and hindered fruit set.
