1963 vintage guide for Red Burgundy

Red Burgundy 1963: Drink now

Disappointing vintage across the whole of the region

Weather Conditions

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.

Best Appellations

None worth recommending

Best Producers

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.
