These photos were taken on the 23rd of August, towards the end of the 5+ days of rainy days.
It must be very close to harvest time on the Right Bank. Notice that the grapes are very dark and ripe looking. Also, to my untrained eye, rather healthy.
Update (28th of August) – Decanter magazine is reporting that the vintage has started (for white grapes). The report is much more upbeat than previous coverage where they said mildrew and rot was rampant.
Update (1st of September) – the weather is looking good now.
