Burgundy: A difficult vintage: hard, tannic red wines and rich, intense whites.
Warm weather only appeared at the end of May to initiate flowering, although it was still relatively cool. Summer started well until the second week of August when the rain arrived. This wet period continued until September, causing rot problems. The warm, sunny weather that returns in mid-September concentrates the grapes more, but is also very favorable to noble rot. The harvest began on September 22 in Côte de Beaune. Remarkably, some of Meursault's white grapes were affected by botrytis, and made a Vendange Tardive wine. The reds were quite tannic and harsh when young; Some have stayed that way, while others have become rounder over time. A vintage to approach selectively with caution.
