Work­ers and wine grow­ers light heaters early in the morn­ing to pro­tect vine­yards from frost out­side Ch­ablis, France, this week. Thibaut Le Mail­loux from the Cham­pagne Com­mit­tee in­dus­try group said: ‘All ar­eas of Cham­pagne are hit to very vary­ing de­grees. It’s too early to es­ti­mate the ex­tent of the dam­age, but the frost is worse than last year.’ The group said that 20% to 25% of vine shoots had been de­stroyed in Cham­pagne by Tues­day – 14% were de­stroyed last year
