Region 'White Burgundy' - Year 1966
|drink now||A good vintage with harmonious, well-balanced wines|
An uneven year. Some hail fell in an otherwise unexceptional spring, which was followed by a warm, mellow June, which resulted in the development of an abundant crop. However, poor weather in July and August affected the ripening of the grapes. A fine September saw the harvest begin in sunny conditions towards the end of the month.
A good-sized crop of white wine, ripened by excellent September weather. The wines were plump, balanced and with plenty of finesse. They held up well but are now long past their best. Consistent quality.
