Rating Drinkability Style

Weather Conditions

April frost was a major problem, but other factors such as hail on June and August and a late flowering also helped to reduce yields severely. Parts of Chablis and the Mâconnais were badly affected by hail. The summer was hot and dry but interrupted by storms. In mid- September there was some rain and cooler temperatures. Harvesting began on 19 September in the Mâconnais, but rain marred the quality.

Best Appellations

In the Côte d'Or there was less rot than among the red vines. Quality is inevitably mixed. Some rot and dilution in Chablis, giving lean wines with little structure.
