Wine vintage rating 2000

What was the vintage 1950 like?

1950 the evaluation is different from different wine critics. As different as sometimes the wines at the wineries. In Bordeaux, the weather was dry and the harvest was early and productive. Rather a Merlot favorable year. In Piedmont not too full-bodied, fine wines.
The year 1950 brought very high yields. The quality of the resulting wines is very inconsistent. The wines from Pomerol, Graves and Margaux often perform best. Conclusion: there are very good 1950s, but they are now also very rare.

Weather in the year 1950

The year started dry and with warm temperatures in February. On the other hand, it got unusually cold in April and early May. Then the weather conditions changed into the opposite: June 1950 was exceptionally hot. The summer remained dry but not particularly warm.

In Burgundy there were some of the recurring hailstorms that hit part of the vineyards. Late summer became rainy, so harvesting had to be done early in the vineyard to avoid damage to the grapes.

Good filling levels, good wine quality

The fill level of an old vintage wine reveals important information on the drinkability of the wine.
Of course, the good condition of a wine from an old vintage depends on excellent storage. Above all, the wine must not have frequently changed cellars. Ideally, the wine will have rested in one and the same wine cellar.

But also the cork that sits in each individual bottle is very important. A perfect cork has few pores and keeps the wine stable. If an inferior cork happens to have been used in a bottle, the porous surface will begin to soak up wine and allow micro-quantities of the liquid to evaporate over the decades. Poor fill levels are the result.

A poor fill level therefore also indicates a high risk that the wine bottle could soon begin to leak.

The fill levels explained:
In the bottle neck (high fill to base neck) about 2 cm is perfect for wines.
Top and upper shoulder, ([very] top shoulder), approx. 3 cm is very good for very old wines.
Medium shoulder (mid shoulder), about 4 cm is only acceptable for rare top wines and in individual cases.
Everything below the red line should not be offered any more.

Wine rating

Do you have a 2000 vintage in your wine cellar and would you like to know how much it is worth?

Here are a few tips: in order to still have any value, the bottle must be leakproof. The wine must not be cloudy. It should be of good quality (not supermarket wine).

Search for the wine online without specifying the vintage. If it is a well-known winery, you will find the wine immediately and also the price you have to pay for the current vintage. If the current wine costs from EUR 20.00 upwards, that's a good sign.
