80% of French vineyards were impacted by spring frosts. It is estimated that 30% of the crop was damaged. Worst hit were Burgundy and Bordeaux. French government has declared frosts as an "agricultural disaster" this year. (https://www.ewga.net/learn/news/item/the-2021-wine-harvest)
The other major region, Napa (California), was hit with an extended period of drought.
How does the harvest look this year?
