1999 Wine Vintage Report

1999 Vintage Port :

1999 was not a general declaration of vintage, however some vineyards produced small quantities of outstanding single quinta wines. These, along with our "20 Years of Port" sets, make a great 20 year old wine gift for a birthday or anniversary.

1999 Italian :

The Barolos and Barbarescos are very good and are reminiscent of the 95s in style and structure. 1999 was the third top vintage in a row in Tuscany. Despite the wet weather in most of Italy, the region remained hot and dry for most of the growing season, although there was intermittent rain during the harvest. Those who picked before the September rains have produced deeply coloured wines that are brimming with rich, ripe fruits.

1999 Bordeaux :

A very good vintage that produced low acidity, ripe wines which have matured quickly and are drinkable now. However, they should last for years to come. The weather during the growing and harvest season was excessively wet and hot and in earlier times could have been disastrous. However, those Chateau that adopted modern selection and processing techniques produced wines of good quality. Those that did not fared less well, a discrepancy reflected in the wide variation in quality across the region.
