1966 vintage guide for White Burgundy

drink now

A good vintage with harmonious, well-balanced wines

Weather Conditions

An uneven year. 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

A good-sized crop of white wine, ripened by excellent September weather. The wines were plump, balanced and with plenty of finesse. They held up well but are now long past their best. Consistent quality.

Best Producers

Carillon, Lafon, Latour’s Corton-Charlemagne, Leflaive, Ramonet, Roulot.
