Bordeaux wine output seen at 7-year high

Dec 19 Bordeaux wine output should reach a seven-year top this year, the head of producers group CIVB said on Monday, confirming that the region had escaped severe weather hiccups that slashed output in many other large producing regions in France. “We are extremely pleased today about the 2016 harvest, mainly for its quality but also for the yields, more generous, which will bring us near a total output of 5.7 million hectolitres of AOP wine, something we had not seen since 2009,” CIVB Chairman Allan Sichel told reporters.

Key Takeaways:

  • Dec 19 Bordeaux wine output should reach a seven-year top this year, the head of producers group CIVB said on Monday, confirming that the region had escaped severe weather hiccups that slashed output in many other large producing regions in France.
  • The rise in output is good news for producers, still reeling from a terrible year in 2013 when output fell to 3.84 millions hectolitres, the lowest since 1991.
  • In contrast, heavy spring rain, followed by a hot and dry summer and wet conditions in September severely hurt vines and output in many other regions including Champagne, Val-de-Loire and Burgundy.
