Red Burgundy, 1998

1998 was an average to poor vintage for both red and white Burgundy, which suffered from extremes of heat, cold and frost during the growing season and a dearth of under-ripe and diseased grapes.

Despite the conditions, Pinot Noir largely benefitted from a warm, dry period on the lead up to harvest and made better wines than expected, though still quite average. The best Pinots were soft with some concentration for medium-term drinking.

White Burgundy suffered from the fungus oidium and botrytis. Yields were low as a result and the best 1er and Grand Cru hillside sites were particularly affected by frost and hail. The best wines were fat and concentrated, but were few and far between.
