Vintage Years

Understanding a vintage year

What is a vintage year? It is simply the date (the year) of birth of the wine. This term really has a huge impact in Burgundy, more than in any other place on Earth. Defined by Monks during the Middle-Ages, the “climats” now stand for work and respect of the vineyard.

But a vintage year is also a moment of life. Like the witness of a particular event, it will probably bring back to your memory a smell, a color, a place or somebody with whom you shared it.

You will find in the following pages an explanation about vintage years since 1980. The understanding of a vintage year is possible by assimilating the contexts and how things happened.

Have a nice reading.
