Indeed, it is not a surprise, 1963 probably does not resemble the exceptional vintage: 1961. A very complicated year for the winegrowers of Bordeaux.

In Burgundy, the 1963 vintage was saved by a sunny late autumn, resulting in late harvests in November. Burgundy wines are more successful in whites than in reds. Indeed, the quality of the 1963 whites is quite good, however some lack acidity.

In the Rhône region, 1963 was also a difficult year. The climatic conditions did not favor good ripening of the grapes. Consequently, the 1963 vintage does not offer very great wines.

 

Our advice for buying a 1963 wine

The 1963 vintage is not so successful on the Rhône or Bordeaux side, which is why we will prefer a Grand Cru from Burgundy.

We recommend the Romanée Conti 1963 du Domaine de la Romanée Conti and the Château d‘Yquem 1963 which offer great wines in this vintage.
