Fine Wine Offer

The Bordeaux vintage of 1998
 
After a disappointing vintage in 1997, Bordeaux’s vignerons hoped for better things in 1998. Early optimism was fuelled by a period of favourable weather during May which allowed for even flowering. July weather was problematic with cool and overcast conditions. Probably the defining period was August which brought unseasonably hot and dry conditions and caused berries to form very thick skins, resulting in the powerful tannins apparent in many wines. The thick skins meant that the fruit was able to survive the rains which came in September but the cool, wet weather favoured right-bank proprietors with a preponderance of Merlot and Cabernet Franc in their vineyards. Many impressive wines emerged from the Medoc where owners managed the timing of their harvest and showed a deft touch in managing tannins in the cellar.
