Vintage Score 1979 Burgundy Red - 15/20
Wine Characteristics Burgundy:
Red wine : A wine grown in so many different villages obviously has a host of different ways of seducing the senses, yet these wines nevertheless share many common traits.
To the eye, they are richly coloured - crimson at first then, with age, shading towards dark ruby. To the nose they offer at first a basket of small red and black fruits (strawberry, cherry, blackcurrant, bilberry) later evolving into cooked prune, peppery notes, and notes of animal, underbrush, moss and mushroom. They are lively and structured in the mouth with a well-rounded and supple backbone. Tannins and fruit go hand in hand and the chewiness matches the power of the secondary aromas. This wine has volume and flesh- it is, in a word, vinous.
Vintage description 1979 Burgundy
Following very good bunch setting and a perfect flowering, the sunny weather in September produced a generous harvest of nicely ripened grapes. The red wines are elegant and harmonious. Many of the cuvées are rich in tannins, which make wines with a very good cellaring capacity. The white wines are fruity, rich and good quality. In general 1979 is a good vintage.
