1980 vintage guide for White Burgundy

drink now

A large crop of indifferent quality – hard and dilute

Weather Conditions

A cold, damp spring retarded the growth of the vines in the early part of the year, and flowering was patchy and prolonged. June was cold and rainy, as was most of July, but temperatures rose to an above-average level in August and September, and the sun finally shone for more than a few fitful hours at a time. Patchy rain fell at the beginning of the harvest period.

Best Appellations

Acceptable at the very best, but the wines were not built to last and are now past their best. Ignore.

Best Producers

Not applicable.
