Small 1991 vintage for Bordeauxwines due to a historic frost on April 21, which devastated the vineyard and more particularly in Pomerol and St Emilion. Late flowering, late maturity of the grapes, winemakers had to wait to harvest; but again the fate continues and a storm on September 25th disrupts the last hopes by pouring in 1 day twice the precipitation of a total month! 1991 Pomerol has largely downgraded its wines, 1991 Saint Emilion has not produced good wines, and only a few Crus Classes from the Northern Medoc and Graveshave been able to offer interesting 1991 wines. No notable in Bordeaux white, and the sweet wines of 1991 Sauternes are rather weak because of the rains. In 1991 Burgundy, the red wines are better than the Burgundy white wines, and without the rains before the harvest, they could have been superb. However, they have retained a somewhat austere character, if one compares them to 1989 and 1990. 1991 Champagne produced wines of average quality and few of 1991 are to be cellared. The NorthernRhone Valley produced the best wines of the 1991 vintage, especially for 1991 Cote Rotie, 1991 Hermitage or 1991 Cornas, which are perfect now. Ravaged by the April frost, the Loire Valley produced lean and acidic wines in both colours in 1991. In Alsace, the 1991 Rieslings are quite good.
