Region 'White Burgundy' - Year 1994

Rating Drinkability Style
starstarstarstarstar keep Difficult, rainy vintage with rather light, thin wines with less acidity than the 1993s

Weather Conditions

The summer was hot and dry, but the weather deteriorated in late August, and there was more rain from September 10. Harvesting began on the Côte de Beaune on 16 September. Some growers waited a week for the rain to end, and some on the Côte de Beaune picked just before the rain, but for many estates the rain had a major impact on quality, especially where rot set in.

Best Appellations

Acidity was less marked than in 1993. April frosts limited the crop by one third in Chablis, but those who picked late had surprisingly good quality.
