1994 vintage guide for Red Burgundy


Uneven quality; wines tend to lack charm and structure, and some show dilution

Weather Conditions

The summer was hot and dry, but the weather deteriorated in late August, and there was more rain from September 10. Harvesting began on the Côte de Beaune on 16 September and on 21 September on the Côte de Nuits. Some growers waited a week for the rain to end, and some on the Côte de Beaune picked just before the rain, but for many estates the rain had a major impact on quality, especially where rot set in.

Best Appellations

The wines tend to lack charm as well as structure, some show dilution, and acidities are low. In general, the best wines came from early harvesters in the Côte de Beaune and from later harvesters in the Côte de Nuits.
