The year 1974 produced fairly weak white Bordeaux and red Bordeaux wines : the harvest was huge but the grapes were diluted from the September rains. However, the red Graves wines (1974 Mission Haut Brion and 1974 Domaine de Chevalier) are successful, and 1974 Chateau Latour in Pauillac or 1974 Trotanoy in Pomerol have also produced very good wines. In Burgundy, the harvests were hampered by an unfavourable weather and in the 2 colours, the wines are rather weak and acidic (some owners have even decided not to bottle their 1974 vintage). The 1974 Rhone wines are rather weak in the Northern part and a little more structured in the Southern (Chateauneuf du Pape). No region was truly privileged in 1974.
