Jacques and Arnaud Couly with their 2005 Clos de l'Echo

The weather here is still bitterly cold. It was only -7.5˚C around midday and certainly the day never got anywhere close to being above freezing and tonight promises to be equally cold. No more snow has fallen since Monday evening and none is forecast in the near future, although it will remain very cold.

Have now finally finished the profile of Vincent Roussely and now plan to get on with ones for Mikaël Bouges and Pascal Potaire as well as write up the visit and tasting at Couly-Dutheil yesterday.
