1945 Vintage wine

Our opinion on the 1945 vintage: probably one of the best vintages of the century in Bordeaux

In Bordeaux, 1945 is considered as one of the jewels of the Bordeaux viticulture. Despite a reduced harvest due to difficult climatic conditions, the grapes that were harvested were of excellent quality. Indeed, the berries were very ripe and concentrated in sugar, which resulted in very rich, intense, extremely tannic wines with great aging potential. Most of the red wines of 1945 need about 50 years for the dry tannins to soften. The Bordeaux whites are firm, dry and well constituted but are still quite rare to obtain.
