1993 Bordeaux — High Hopes Drowned by a Wet September

Much like 1992, the 1993 vintage started off with a bang. A warm, dry summer had vintners smiling as the end of the season approached, but dreams of a perfect vintage were squashed by two months of incessant rainfall which engulfed the entire region. September of 1993 may have been one of the wettest months of the century, recording over 300% more rainfall than the average. The rain soaked the vineyards, and made harvest, which began on September 26th, very challenging.

There were some soft, elegant, and well-balanced wines made in 1993, but most were light and diluted. The dry whites seemed lackluster, and the sweet wines were not of quality, due to the lack of noble rot in the vineyards. For the reds, Merlot-based wines trumped Cabernet sauvignon, and though a few of the top producers made elegant wines, they are now past their primes.
