1973 vintage guide for White Burgundy

drink now

A large harvest of moderately good wines

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

Despite the large crop, as in 1979, some surprisingly good wines, particularly in Puligny.

Best Producers

The Remoissentet selections, bottled in the UK by The Wine Society, were fine. Edmond Delagrange, Jacques Gagnard-Delagrange, Lafon, Leflaive, Pierre Morey, Ramonet and Roulot also made fine examples. Again, however, the vintage is now too old.
