The 2013 vintage will not be remembered as an exceptional vintage. The difficult weather conditions created havoc all over the place.
Let's take a look at the appellations and regions that have done well given the climate.
Saint-Estèphe and Margaux are successful wines, despite a limited aging potential. The white Graves wines are expressive while the reds are light.
Pomerols and Merlots are fresh and tight wines, with a guard, of course, always limited in time. As for the sweet wines, they often do very well!
In Burgundy, the quantities are minimal, too much damage caused by the weather, but fine, mineral and delicate whites, Meursault, Puligny, Chassagne and Corton stand out. In reds, Nuits-St-Georges, Chambolle-Musigny and Vosne-Romanée are also produced in small quantities but very successful.
In Champagne, the chardonnays are successful, special mention for the Aÿ sector.
Saint-Peray, Cornas and St-Joseph are doing well in Côtes du Rhône.
