Overall quality of the vintage: Mediocre.
The verdict is unanimous. Impossible to find any trace of this vintage, so anxious were winegrowers to delete it from their records. It is not so much the intrinsic quality of the wine that is in question, as its incredibly high acidity.
Undoubtedly, the first half of this decade, with the exception of the superb 1921, was marked by disappointment, as 1925 reproduced the failure of 1922. This is a vintage best forgotten.
Discouraging. Faced with such a conspiracy of bad weather and diseases, Emile Hugel in Riquewihr reported "a very poor harvest". In Eguisheim, René Beyer notes that "the hail of 19 July virtually destroyed the entire harvest". Everywhere, the press is reporting that "overall, the harvest will be poor throughout Alsace, the worst since the province returned to being French again".
