1973 vintage guide for Red Burgundy

drink now

The wines produced tended to be a little light

Weather Conditions

The flowering took place in fine spring weather, but there was no rain at all until the middle of July, when heavy rain began to fall. These conditions continued until the late harvest.

Best Appellations

A large vintage. Riper than 1974, but similarly rather loose-knit. It was a good stop-gap vintage at the time, but the wines are now past their best.

Best Producers
