In Bordeaux, 1956 saw terrible frosts. All of the Bordeaux vineyards were destroyed. The result is a very low harvest which makes red Bordeaux wines rare.
Same observation in Burgundy, a terrible freeze in February (-30 ° C) considerably changed the vintage. 1956 will not have seen great wines in Burgundy.
Than, in the Rhône the climatic conditions were rather favorable to the maturation of the grapes. We are talking about a quality vintage with good wines. We will therefore favor this region over the other two.
