Touraine – memories of 8th June 2011 in Cher Valley
Flowering was very early in 2011. Grapes already
well formed by 8th June.
In both 2013 and 2016 flowering
hadn't started by this date
Recalling visits Nigel Wilkinson (RSJ Restaurant) and I made to Noëlla Morantin and Vincent Roussely in June 2011.
