1922

Red Burgundy - 1922

Overall quality of the vintage: mediocre.

White Burgundy - 1922

Overall quality of the vintage: average. Nothing but water. Again. And mildew to add to the unforgiving weather.  The year ended on a  high note, however, with sunny weather resulting in a superb must that required no enrichment. With the whites proving more successful, as a rule, than the reds (in both volume and quality), this is a vintage that would fade surprisingly from memory. Initially underestimated in Chablis, it would then develop very successfully to give a great northern Chardonnay.

Red Bordeaux - 1922

Meteorological data: gloomy weather, a cold September.
Harvest status: Dates: late ripening, harvest in October.
Abondance: very large harvest.
Quality: uneven.
Overall quality of the vintage: mediocre, few wines have survived.

White Bordeaux - 1922

Overall quality of the vintage: mediocre. Few wines survived.

Syrupy Bordeaux - 1922

Harvest status: Dates: premature harvest, on September 12th
Abundance: many grapes.
Quality: little noble rot.
Overall quality of the vintage: mediocre, light wines now past their best.

Champagne - 1922

With the highest yields since the beginning of the century, the year is characterised as much by over-harvesting as by the rot affecting the grapes. Some 12,600 per hectare were harvested compared to only 2,000 in 1921; an unprecedented difference.

Rhone Valley - 1922

A vintage totally devoid of interest. The worst wine produced in the Rhône Valley since the beginning of the century.

Alsace White - 1922

In this region too, the harvest is the largest in a long time. In his remarkable chronicle of Alsatian viticulture in the 20th century, writer Claude Muller points out that "you would have to go back to 1875, i.e. half a century earlier, to encounter such another yield. This is the first time since 1900 that a harvest has exceeded one million hectolitres." Even so, the wines are of only average quality.
