A hot summer was followed in September by considerable downpours, which harmed prospects for a great vintage. Nonetheless much of the Merlot on the right bank ripened properly, and there were some impressive wines.
Pomerol succeeded slightly better than St Emilion, but heavy selection was essential.
One of the stars of the vintage in St Emilion was Angélus.
