1966 vintage guide for Red Burgundy

Red Burgundy 1966: Drink soon

Excellent vintage of elegant and well-balanced wines with clean, pure flavours

Weather Conditions

An uneven year for the red Burgundy . Some hail fell in an otherwise unexceptional spring, which was followed by a warm, mellow June, which resulted in the development of an abundant crop. However, poor weather in July and August affected the ripening of the grapes. A fine September saw the harvest begin in sunny conditions towards the end of the month.

Best Appellations

Romanee-Conti

Best Producers

This vintage was very generous from all points of view. All wines had lovely fruit: the best lasted very well. Domaine de la Romanee-Conti Romanee St-Vivant was generally considered superb, along with most wines from the Romanee region.
