1984 vintage guide for White Burgundy

drink now

Small, average vintage with excess acidity and relatively little fruit

Weather Conditions

Spring was cool and damp and the flowering was delayed as a result. The weather improved by the start of summer, and July was warm and sunny. August, however, saw a number of thunderstorms, and conditions deteriorated further in September, which was extremely wet. The late harvest produced a poor crop of acidic grapes.

Best Appellations

Just as bad a white wine vintage as a red one. Clean but unripe lean wines. Now well past it. Ignore.

Best Producers
