decent if light wines were made, which were best drunk young
Early flowering was followed by a very wet summer, and there was widespread rot. Cool September weather may have prevented further infestations of rot, but also prevented many vines from ripening properly.
Where the Merlot did ripen properly, some decent if light wines were made, which were best drunk young. In general Pomerol was better than St Emilion.
Good wines were made at Pétrus and Trotanoy.
