1974 vintage guide for White Burgundy

drink now

An unexceptional year with few noteworthy wines

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 watery vintage. A few pleasant surprises such as Lafon’s Montrachet. Again, now old.

Best Producers
