|drink soon||A poor vintage in which very little wine was produced|
Flowering was prolonged, and the summer was unusually wet. Botrytis set in mid-September, but growers also had to battle with grey rot. Harvesting began around 16 September, but most grapes were insufficiently concentrated. Rain on 29 September caused further problems, and by the time dry weather returned in mid-October, most estates had given up. Slack wines with little distinction; some estates released no wine in 1992.
