1993 Vintage Report

Bordeaux: 1993 wine: This is considered to be a moderate vintage following on from the poor vintages of 1991 and 1992. Despite some dilution from late rains in September, the better examples of wine from this year exhibit a deep colour, rich intensity and have a good structure. The top wines from 1993 find more favour with critics than 1991 and 1992 and should be drinkable for a few years to come.

 
Champagne: 1993 was a particularly early vintage, helped by scorching spring heats. Harvest thus started early in September, and proved to be prompt and plethoric. Then summertime was dry and sunny.
 
Vintage Port: 1993 Port: One of the worst years ever in the Douro with rain falling throughout the harvest. No declarations were made and little or no vintage Port was made.

Barolo, 1993

Clerico – Ciabot Mentin Ginestra

Barolo is known as the 'king of wines' and is made from the Nebbiolo grape. Heady aromas of rose, leather, vanilla, cherry, pepper, cranberry, strawberry. Fruits are perfectly knitted with the tannins and acidity. It's a powerful wine but remarkably subtle. Don't underestimate it and certainly serve it with food to show at it's best. Nebbiolo has naturally high tannins and acidity, so it will take on full-flavoured, rich foods no problem at all.

Chateau Clerc Milon Rothschild, 1993

Pauillac 5th Growth Classification

*** 87 Points - Robert Parker ***

Reviews: A saturated dark ruby/purple-colored, medium-bodied, well-made wine, Clerc-Milon's 1993 exhibits textbook, blackcurrant and weedy tobacco scents. Although the wine is slightly tannic, it does not reveal any of the vintage's astringency or vegetal characteristics. It should offer attractive, velvety-textured, surprisingly fine drinking.

Chateau Lafite Rothschild, 1993

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe,

A successful wine for Lafite, this dark ruby/purple-colored 1993 is tightly-wound, medium-bodied, with a closed set of aromatics that reluctantly reveal hints of sweet blackcurrant fruit, weedy tobacco, and lead pencil scents. Polished and elegant, with Lafite's noble restraint, this is an excellent, classy, slightly austere wine. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2020. (Robert Parker)

Chateau Latour, 1993

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe

A terrific wine for the vintage, Latour's 1993 reveals an opaque purple color, a backward, cedar, black walnut, cassis, and earth-scented nose, medium to full body, gorgeously rich, concentrated fruit, moderately high tannin (but no astringency), and a sweet, long, powerful finish. The wine does not possess any of the vegetal, green pepper characteristics of the vintage, nor any hint of hollowness or harshness. This wine may prove to merit an even higher rating. Is this vintage the modern day clone of the 1967 and 1971?

Chateau Margaux, 1993

Margaux Premiere Grand Cru Classe

92 Points - Robert Parker

Less than 50% of Margaux's 1993 harvest made the grade for the estate's "grand vin." A blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot, and the 2% Cabernet Franc, Margaux's 1993 is atypically supple and seductive. It offers an impressively saturated ruby/purple color, an intense fragrance of red and black fruits, toast, and spring flowers, and a voluptuously-textured, multi-layered personality, with expansive, sweet, ripe fruit. It is surprisingly forward, without the mouth-aching tannin possessed by many 1993s. The wine is medium to full-bodied, beautifully pure, and reminiscent of this property's splendid 1985.

Chateauneuf du Pape, 1993

Chateau de Beaucastel

89 points Average Cellar Tracker Score

A fairly strong wine from a weak vintage. This wine benefits from about 2 hours decanting to allow the nose to open up into an excellent example of aged CdP. Light in colour, and decent colour at the rim, no true bricking. Complex, with the black fruits playing lead and the usual Rhone notes playing a background note. Long, long finish. A solid wine.

Cognac Brugerolle, 1993

Grand Champagne Cognac

Its intense and deep amber colour is a sign of its strength. Its flavours of candied fruit and its subtle and lightly spicy nose create a complete harmony: a mark of its power and roundness. To taste, a smooth, full sensation gives a simultaneously powerful and soft tonality with a hint of cocoa and a warm fruity presence. The long finish expresses all the complexity of the cognac’s blending and its long aging process.

Cumins, 1993

Picolit Liveron

The grapes are harvested by hand using boxes. The grapes are dried for about
30 days. After this period, pressing and subsequent cleaning of the must
through settling are carried out. The fermentation takes place
in Allier Barriques at a controlled temperature of 20°C. When the fermentation
is over, the product thus obtained is not poured off and therefore remains
in the same containers to mature for about eight months at a constant
temperature. At the end of this period, the wine is assembled and bottled.
There follows a further long period of refining in the bottle before
the wine is distributed.

Nebbiolo, 1993

Domanda Dino

The Nebbiolo has a lovely earthy bouquet. The nose has cherries, dark cherries, tar and slight dried rose notes. Complex and layered. Nice acidity. Medium tannins still present. Cherries on the palate too. Nice finish. Great food wine. Nebbiolo is a fickle grape famed as much for its pale appearance as for its tannic character and produces some of the most perfumed and richly flavored wines. Though generally only medium-bodied, the wines possess rose and anise scented aromatics and deep flavors of cherry, orange peel and subtle green herb tones.

Nobile di Montepulciano, 1993

Avignonesi - Riserva

Montepulciano is a red wine grape variety grown widely in central Italy, most notably its eastern Abruzzo, Marche and Molise regions. The variety was named after the Tuscan parish of Montepulciano, but, confusingly, is not used in the famous wines produced there (see Vino Nobile di Montepulciano). Globally appreciated for their soft flavors, strong color and gentle tannins, Montepulciano wines are typically best consumed in their youth and with food. The deep-purple juice of Montepulciano grapes is used in varying proportions to produce wines under roughly 50 of Italy's DOC and DOCG titles. Although sometimes used on its own,

Rosso Toscano, 1993

Accaiolo - Castello d'Albola

This is Castello di Albola premium wine, which combines the elegance of Sangiovese with the expressivity of Cabernet Sauvignon. Its structure is very concentrated, but it is nicely balanced by the full fruit, with hints of plums and a suggestion of undergrowth. Acciaiolo is a very successful blend of Sangiovese from old vines, grown in an outstanding vineyard with southerly exposure, which gives the wine the stamp of tradition, of history and of the terroir, with exceptionally ripe, richly fl avoured Cabernet Sauvignon. This exclusive wine has for some time now only been produced in the best vintages and in very limited quantity.

Rosso Toscano, 1993

San Martino - Villa Cafaggio

Villa Cafaggio’s San Martino is of an intense garnet colour and has a bouquet with notes of mulberries and raspberries. Full on the palate, there are notes of black bilberries, with a complex roasted flavour and very soft tannins. The finish is very lingering and intense.

The grapes used in the production of this Super Tuscan are destemmed and delicately crushed to minimize damage to the skin. Maximum extraction of colour and tannin is very important and fermentation is encouraged through the addition of selected yeasts. The alcoholic fermentation takes place in wooden vats at controlled temperatures not exceeding 30°C.
