Region 'Red Burgundy' - Year 1977
|drink now||A generally poor vintage for red wines|
The climate reversed the conditions prevailing during the previous year. Rain fell fairly constantly, almost daily throughout July. While the first fortnight of August saw a return to fine weather, there were a couple of violent thunderstorms at the end of the month. A sunny September helped ripen the crop further, and harvest began late, during the first week of October.
A poor vintage. Well past its best. Ignore.
