The greatest wines in the world. Wines from the best vintages.
A truly great year, a wonderful vintage in Bordeaux. The reds are full-bodied, roasted, savoury, fat and aromatic. Great wines ! The whites are very successful, sappy, balanced and stylish sweet wines rich in alcohol and sugars. Very good bottles !
In his "the great vintage wine book, Michael Broadbent reported that a ferocious cyclone hit the Côte de Beaune in late June, further reducing the crop to one-sixteeth of the size anticipated. These extremely minuscule quantities, together with the hot weather, produced highly concentrated wines.

In Bordeaux, an excellent but reduced harvest that took some time to assert itself.
Reds (Bordeaux): generously endowed and full-bodied, with all the qualities of truly great wines. However, the 1975 have not lived up to expectations.

A small harvest in Bordeaux, but excellent wines.

In Bordeaux, one of the greatest vintages in twenty years, particularly for the reds.
Reds: weel-endowed, full-bodied with excellent tannins. The Merlot, which gives the wine its flesh and thickness, fared particularly well, while Cabernet Sauvignon was rather more subdued. Cellaring under close monitoring.
Whites: rather heterogeneous, with some good wines, that are sometimes a bit dull at times and lacking in brillance.

In Bordeaux, an extremely dry year with nearly perfect conditions. Because of the drought, the vintage produced concentrated wines high in alcohol, with higher acidity than usual. Therefore, the wines will require 10 to 15 years to reach drink-ability. One of the greatest appelation of the vintage is Margaux wines, one of the greatest all time.
