Overall quality of the vintage: poor. Consumed during the war
Overall quality of the vintage: good.
No house declares a vintage. With only 1,100 kilograms of grapes per hectare, this is the lowest harvest since 1916.
The wine leaves little taste in the mouth. Like all the war vintages (with the exception of the 1943), it merits little mention.
Annexed by Germany, the region produces a very small grape harvest and wines of fairly good quality. In his Chronique de la viticulture alsacienne au XXe siècle, it is to this vintage that Claude Muller finds himself forced to devote the least space. The indefatigable historian can only repeat the laconic comments of commentators who took the trouble: "good wine in Mittelbergheim, average quality but very pleasant and harmonious wines in Riquewihr…" As a result of the war, notes Henri Beck of Pfaffenheim, "in June, Alsace comes under German control. The prices of the old wine start to increase from July."
