1974 vintage guide for Red Burgundy

drink now

An unexceptional vintage with few wines of note

Weather Conditions

A mild spring was punctuated by frosts. July and August saw some warm weather, but rain fell during much of a cold September – there was even some snow. The harvest took place in wet conditions from late September onwards.

Best Appellations

A large, rained-on vintage with a few decent wines, which are now too old. Ignore.

Best Producers
