2004 Wine and Port

2004 Wine Vintage Report

2004 Vintage Port :

2004 Port Vintage: The 2004 vintage was not generally declared, but some wonderful single quinta vintages were bottled. These 2004 Vintage Ports show intense deep purple-red colour, a factor that was strongly influenced by the August rains that softened the skins and allowed for better colour extraction. The nose is lifted and fresh, again thanks to the cooler August weather. The taste is rich, firm and with good acidity and fine peppery tannins. These wines are most attractive and will age extremely well.

2004 Italian :

2004 Piedmont: Very promising with few extremes of weather and well balanced wines. 2004 Tuscany: Exceptionally good vintage, central Italy’s equivalent of the perfect growing season that France experienced in 2005.

2004 Bordeaux :

2004 Bordeaux: The 2004 wine vintage marked a return to a more classic Bordeaux vintage. The wines are more traditionally styled, and will make fine drinking for many cellars. The vintage seems a little under-rated compared with 2003 and the wines represent good value.

2004 Chateau Gruaud Larose

The ’04 has a deep garnet core. The bouquet is light and tobacco-scented, quite earthy with a hint of sous-bois. Perhaps it just lacks a little vigour

2004 Chateau La Source

Delicious traditional claret style that is increasingly rare but a joy when you come across it. Raspberry and blackcurrant fruit is tempered by the classic savoury aromas of tobacco and mineral.

2004 Chateau Lafite Rothschild

Only 39% of production was used for the Grand Vin and with a whopping 90.5% Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend (the balance being 9% Merlot and 0.5% Petit Verdot) the 2004 Lafite needed little introduction.

2004 Chateau Margaux

With as much Merlot in the blend as the 1990 and 1996 the quality of this wine is as good as any vintage that winemaker Paul Pontallier can remember. This is as fabulous and exciting as the 2000 had been at a similar stage.
