Red Burgundy 1963: Drink now
Disappointing vintage across the whole of the region
The weather did not warm up until June, after a severe winter and protracted, coolish spring. July saw intermittent rain, and August was, frankly, wet. The crop did not really have a chance to begin ripening until the middle of September. Harvest began late, in October, and did not end until the beginning of November.
None worth recommending
This vintage was a very poor one, with most of the producers not producing anything at all, and the best of the rest now well past their prime.
