Red Burgundy 1965: Drink now
Very indifferent quality thanks to a persistently wet summer
A disastrous vintage, badly affected by rot. Levels of sunshine were well below average throughout summer and, by September, the ground was waterlogged due to heavy falls of rain. On the 8th of September, the area was struck by an extremely violent storm, washing soil and vines down the slopes. Harvest started four weeks later than usual, but by then there was not much left to pick.
None worth recommending
The second of the three bad years, this vintage is best forgotten.
