1965 vintage guide for Red Burgundy

Red Burgundy 1965: Drink now

Very indifferent quality thanks to a persistently wet summer

Weather Conditions

A disastrous vintage, badly affected by rot. Levels of sunshine were well below average throughout summer and, by September, the ground was waterlogged due to heavy falls of rain. On the 8th of September, the area was struck by an extremely violent storm, washing soil and vines down the slopes. Harvest started four weeks later than usual, but by then there was not much left to pick.

Best Appellations

None worth recommending

Best Producers

The second of the three bad years, this vintage is best forgotten.
