For Bordeaux wines, a rather satisfactory year. Marked by changing weather conditions with a hot summer and heavy rainfall before the harvest, severe selection was necessary. The talented producers managed to distinguish themselves with fleshy and balanced wines. The best successes are to be found in the Médoc, particularly in the Margaux, Saint Julien and Pessac Léognan appellations.
The same is true for Burgundy wines, with capricious weather but in the end a very good yield and quality of grapes. The red burgundies are improving with time but the whites are not made for ageing.
In the Rhône, following a rather dark period between 1991 and 1994, the good summer conditions were swept away by heavy rains. In the South, serious flooding occurred from mid-September onwards. This resulted in rather light wines.
Among the most successful wines of this vintage we recommend Château Angelus 1993, Château Margaux 1993, Château Pape Clément 1993 and Château Talbot 1993 which offer great wines. Sauternes this year are to be avoided, the heavy rainfall has deteriorated the quality of the vintage.
As far as Burgundy wines are concerned, turn rather to the red wines which are good, complex and gain in length with time.
In the north of the Rhone valley the 1993 wines are less qualitative. However, in the southern Rhône the red wines are excellent. The Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Gigondas appellations produced a great vintage.
