Rating Drinkability Style
starstarstarstarstar drink soon A good crop of rounded, fruity wines rather short of acidity

Weather Conditions

After a warm May, June was very wet, and flowering was protracted. But the summer was fine, except for rain in late August, ands fine weather resumed in September. The harvest began on 12 September on the Côte de Beaune, and on 21 September in Chablis.

Best Appellations

There was a touch of rot, but the white vines were basically healthy, although the grapes lacked acidity. The character of the vintage was consistent throughout Burgundy: soft, plump, fruity wines for medium-term drinking, and in the top Côte d'Or vineyards a clutch of exceptional wines.
