Weather Conditions

Conditions were cold and rainy from winter onwards right through to the end of May. June’s good weather developed into an extremely hot summer, although a reasaonable degree of rainfall prevented drought from developing. Reds: good weather continued throughout the late harvest, which began on the 9th of October.

Best Appellations

St-Emilion and Pomerol: both did well with fruity attractive wines of medium weight.

Best Producers

St-Emilion: exceptionally Ausone was better than Cheval Blanc. Magdelaine, Belair and Canon matured very attractively.
