Coming off low volume of the 2013 harvest, which was 3.8 trillion hectolitres, 2014 proved to be another poor harvest for the Bordeaux area. Multiple hailstorms during the 2013 growing season contributed to the weak harvest
The 2014 harvest is projected to be between 5.2 and 5.4 million hectoliters.
The silver lining to the 2014 Bordeaux harvest comes from the abundance of autumn sun which helped to create a "rare" vintage. This vintage is helping to create excitement within the Bordeaux community, something much needed after the catastrophic 2013 season.
