1965 vintage guide for White Burgundy

drink now

A very indifferent year

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 8 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

Though better in white than in red, this is a poor vintage. Long gone.

Best Producers

Not applicable.
