Red Burgundy 1966: Drink soon

Excellent vintage of elegant and well-balanced wines with clean, pure flavours

Weather Conditions

An uneven year for the red Burgundy . 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.

Best Appellations


Best Producers

This vintage was very generous from all points of view. All wines had lovely fruit: the best lasted very well. Domaine de la Romanee-Conti Romanee St-Vivant was generally considered superb, along with most wines from the Romanee region.
