Vintage description 1989 Burgundy

The vines had exceptionally sunny weather but did not suffer from the summer drought thanks to the storms in mid-July. The harvest was early and in a good sanitary state. The yields were not always sufficiently controlled and resulted in red wines of varying quality, but generally 1989 was a great vintage. The red wines have a good level of intensity and are today characterised by their very soft tannins. There are also delightfully soft and elegant. The Chardonnay region had exceptionally ripe grapes which produced generous and extremely ample white wines.
