1973 Vintage Report

Italian: The 1973 wine vintage was a good one for Italian Wines from Tuscany (Chianti and Brunello) and fair for Piedmont (Barolo and Barbaresco).
Spring was mild and the summer hot and dry, but the run in to the harvest was wet and many producers were faced with the problem of either picking early with low sugar levels or risking the harvest by waiting for the weather to improve. It was a big harvest everywhere in the region. The best wines were produced by those vineyards that adopted careful selection.
 
Bordeaux: The 1973 wine vintage produced an enormous crop of easy drinking wines full of succulent fruit. The best examples from vineyards that adopted good selection are still drinking well today. Wines from Pauillac and Graves stand out.

The weather was dry and warm throughout most of spring, providing good conditions for flowering. Heavy rain fell during much of July, but the month that followed was hot and dry. September began fine, but wet conditions returned from the middle of the month onwards.
 
Vintage Port: No vintage ports were produced in 1973.

D'Oliveiras Madeira, 1973

Boal Madeira

Buals are a brilliant varietal of madeira that illustrates the tension between residual sweetness and bracing acidity and offers up a heady nose of candied ginger, orange, caramel, and coffee. That's just a hint of the nose. The seamless integration of depth, power, nuance and lyricism always astonishes me, even now. The mouth feel and finish is elegant viscosity and a flavor profile that continues to evolve in the glass. It has a long length and finish.
