Beaujolais drastically cuts yields

The decision was taken back in July to set the yield between 32 and 25 hectolitres/hectare in Beaujolais.
This is a severe drop considering the average authorised yield in the region approaches 52hl/ha. Economic reasons were given for this decision, namely that last year the en primeur offering of 360,000hl saw takers for only 275,000hl.
