Traduction Devastating hail storms earlier this year left winemakers pessimistic about the prospects for 2014. Up to 40% of the vineyards in Meursault, Pommard, Volnay and Beaune were destroyed by ""size hail golf balls"" in June, with greater damage in other municipalities. But the good weather in September has led to both red and white wines and harvest should be finished by the middle of next week. Chardonnay is fantastic, came with a lot of acidity. The Black Pinot is concentrated with thick skins; they have a good balance between acidity and alcohol, but the fruit is tight. It will be a great year, good for aging. The only problem is quantity.
