1977 Vintage Report

Italian: 1977 was a good vintage for Italian Wines. Top regions such as Tuscany and Piedmont produced rich, full bodied wines. The wines are fully mature but will still make good drinking today.
 
Bordeaux: Poor weather throughout the growing season led to a very small crop of thin, light 1977 wines, most of which were drunk within a few years of the vintage. As a result, wines originating from this vintage are rare.

 
Spain:
1977 Vintage Report

A few top producers made very good wine – for example, Martínez Bujanda and Salceda – but most of it was run-of-the-mill and was drunk as joven. A meagre 1% achieved Gran Reserva status.
 
Vintage Port: 1977 was a classic Port vintage that was declared by all the major port houses. Even after more than thirty years, the ports are only just becoming approachable. They will last for many more decades. The port wines are concentrated, complex, well structured and balanced. Marked by strong tannins, these wines have great finesse and staying power.

Castel del Monte, 1977

Torricciola, Enrico Tannuga

Castel del Monte is a DOC of the Puglia wine region in south-eastern Italy. In a region where only a small proportion of vineyards take up the DOC titles to which they are entitled, Castel del Monte is one of the more promising. The 'Castle on the Hill' referred to in the name is precisely that - an octagonal fortification built in the 13th century which overlooks the landscape for miles around. The castle itself has less of a promising future than the wines made in its name, as over the centuries it has been used as a prison, a plague shelter and finally a source of marble and stone for opportunistic locals.

Chateau Haut Batailley, 1977

Pauillac 5eme Cru Classe (Half Bottle)

This is a little better than the average for this vintage in that the nose first showed heavy tones of saddler and tobacco above all else but it calmed with the time after opening. Lots of sous bois and wet mushrooms developed with hints of the tobacco and leather. Some hints of lead pencil and cigar, but the palate still has a refined and smooth feel, albeit lacking in grip and fruit depth.
