A huge, but largely low quality harvest is expected in Champagne following the highest recorded rainfall in the region since 1873. Botrytis also became a problem that affected around 25% of the grapes in the wet, humid conditions in early September, according to Moet & Chandon's head winemaker Georges Blanck.
