2006 Wine and Port

2006 Wine Vintage Report

2006 Italian :

2006 Piedmont: A coolish summer was followed by an Indian summer punctuated by two bouts of rain but the grapes were healthy enough to withstand them. Promising. 2006 Tuscany: Very promising vintage with a steady, prolonged growing season and well balanced wines.

2006 Bordeaux :

2006 Bordeaux Wine: This vintage produced somewhat hard and tannic wines. Whilst they do not have the flesh or ripeness of 2005 or 2003, they will have longevity. In time the 2006 vintage may turn out to be a more classic vintage like 1996 - but with less ripeness.

2006 Vintage Port :

2006 Port Vintage: A wet year with rain inconveniently timed in September. But some grapes were also shrivelled by extreme heat. Far from a textbook year.
