Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In France, after a fairly warm winter, there were catastrophic (but perfectly normal for the season) frosts in late March which have wiped out most of the stone fruit and a significant percentage of the grapes for this year (because buds had developed early).

But drought is the big issue, with water tables extremely low after insufficient rain in winter and spring.
