In 1957 typical for Bordeaux wines was high acidity, which has allowed the wines to age well, but without a lot of richness or charm to the wines. The growing season of the year 1957 from April to August was wet. The month of August was one of the hottest on record, which was followed by one of the hottest Octobers.
Yields were small as many vineyards were being replanted following the devastating frost from 1956. The 1957 Bordeaux harvest officially started October 4.
