1980

Our view on the 1980 vintage

In Bordeaux the 1980 vintage was noted to be quite weak and late (in terms of flowering, maturity of the grapes, and harvest dates) and it was better to be located among the lightest soils (Such as in Margaux or GravesPessac Leognan) to have a successful 1980 year – but only at the price of the delayed harvest and a very important sorting). Some red Bordeaux wines were able to get by (1980 Chateau Latour, 1980 Chateau Margaux, 1980 Chateau Pichon Comtesse, 1980 Chateau Talbot, 1980 Chateau Mission Haut Brion, 1980 Chateau Cheval Blanc, 1980 Chateau Petrus, 1980 Chateau Certan de May..). In 1980 Sauternes, a good late season made it possible to produce beautiful wines and 1980 Chateau Yquem, 1980 Chateau De Fargues or 1980 Chateau Climens were very successful. In 1980 in Burgundy, the vintage gave 1980 red Burgundy of uneven quality, because September was rainy, and the rot having developed quickly, it was necessary to sort the grapes severely. Despite everything, some 1980 white Burgundy wines were interesting in the Cote de Beaune and some reds retained a seductive character. Good 1980 Vintage in Champagne (thanks to a small quantity and a beautiful acidity) ; in the Rhone Valley, the quantity was plethoric and of medium to weakly structured quality. Diluted wines in the Loire Valley, and a rather weak vintage for Alsace wines (cold and rainy harvests).

Heureusement que les bouteilles étaient bien emballées car les bouteilles ont bougé et casser la protection interne. Sans doute les colis ont étés lancés durant les divers transfert.
La procédure de livraison est lisse et je suis très satisfait
Tres bien envoi rapide colis soigné
2ème commande auprès de ce site. Très satisfait des premiers achats, à des tarifs très raisonnables. Une douzaine de bouteilles des années 80' et 90' bues à ce jour, la plupart en très bon état de conservation même si une était bouchonnée et le contenu d'une seconde un peu madérisé.
Excellent site. Professionnalisme et rapidité
always a pleasure - real pros
parfait
