1994 Wine Vintage Report

1994 Vintage Port :

A 1994 Vintage Port makes a great 25 year old wine gift for a 25th birthday or anniversary: 1994 was one of the greatest vintages of the 20th Century that produced classic, monumental port wines with rich fruit character. While these wines can be approached in their youth, the best need 20 years in bottle, making them mature for drinking now or perfect to age for another 20 years. Our wine buyer highly recommends the 1994 Taylor's Vintage Port , an outstanding Vintage Port that scored an incredible 100 points from Wine Spectator and 97 from Robert Parker.

1994 Italian :

In Tuscany, the Chianti Classico, Vino Nobile and Brunello had a very good year with a warm early Spring. The good weather conditions carried through to the harvest season with healthy, ripe fruit. In Piedmont prolonged rain caused serious problems, however a few producers still made good Barolo and Barbaresco wines.

1994 Bordeaux :

The 1994 vintage is generally rated as good but a little inconsistent. The top estates produced some very fine wines that are far superior to those in the poor years between 1991 and 1993. The best 1994 Bordeaux wines are characterised by high tannin levels with rich fruit and should mature well over the next few years.

From Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Biondi Santi is a renowned name across the world, yet it remains an anachronistic wine, at odds with the vogue for rich, fruit-laden Brunello's that are lavished in new oak.

1994 Chateau Leoville Poyferre

Reviews:
A garnet core with deep brick rim, slightly brighter than the 1993. The nose is very conservative upon the first couple of sniffs, but be patient because it evolves an attractive mulberry scented aromas with touches of bilberry and Satsuma.
