In Bordeaux, the weather conditions were a real roller coaster: rainy March followed by very hot months, rainy and cool August, but the late autumn was very sunny and saved the day. It was the areas that waited the most and selected their beans that came out the best.
In Burgundy and Champagne, the bad weather created big differences. The quality will be at the rendezvous at the cost of a rigorous selection of the grains by the hand of man, but the result is very beautiful wines.
The 2006 Rhône vintage was excellent for the North and the South.
In Bordeaux, Pomerol and Saint Emilion are silky, balanced, the result of a Merlot that matures more quickly. On the left bank, the wines were closed and austere at the time, but promised to keep well. The Saint Juliens are promising, the Pauillacs of a very beautiful complexity and the Pessac Léognan of a beautiful finesse.
In Burgundy, some good Côte de Nuits reds and fresh whites were produced.
On the Champagne side, the best wines are fresh, fruity and elegant, sometimes opulent. However, some were slightly lacking in acidity.
In the Rhône Valley, powerful and elegant wines, with superb Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Gigondas to drink now.
