The 2006 vintage in Bordeaux was a good year but had extremely variable weather throughout the year with a very cold winter, a dry spring and a scorching July. September was very wet which hampered the harvest. Cabernet Sauvignon based wines were most successful. A vintage for drinkable wines to be consumed in the long term. 2006 was a very good vintage for Red and White Burgundy. It was an outstanding vintage in the North and South of the Cote du Rhone. In Portugal, no vintage ports were made. The Champagne region also produced some good Champagne which is drinking beautifully. It was also an outstanding vintage in Italy for red wines.
