Largest harvest in a decade in Bordeaux

Production rose to over 500 million liters in Bordeaux in 2016, making it the largest harvest since 2006. 577 million liters of wine is the equivalent of 770 million bottles of wine. Interestingly, production was roughly the same as 2006 despite the vineyard area reduced in size by 10% in that time span. The plentiful harvest was possible because the region experienced a long, very warm summer and autumn months. The harvest was split into the following categories: 85 percent red, 4 percent rose, 10 percent dry white and 1 percent sweet white.
