VINTAGE SPIRITS


An outstanding vintage from Bordeaux due to a summer heatwave that made for very tannic wines, but alas few wines have survived. It was also a great vintage for Red Burgundy and in the Northern Rhone and Southern Cote du Rhone. In Portugal Tawny ports are excellent. Sweet French red wines from the South of France and Armagnac are an excellent choice.
