After a hard winter the wine growers had hoped for a nice spring and early summer. But instead, diseases have spread in the vineyards. La Vigne informs about cool and rainy weather during flowering, which has caused the disease coulure in several places, for instance in the Côte d’Or in Burgundy, Alsace and Bordeaux.
Coulure gives an uneven flowering which may affect the harvest quantity. In Alsace, the grape affected is mainly muscat. In Bordeaux, the flowering was very slow and heterogeneous.
