Wine vintage rating 1975

What was the vintage 1975 like? 
The 1975 vintage followed three rather weaker Bordeaux vintages. A wide range of wineries delivered a very high quality and so the 1975 vintage was declared vin de garde. The weather in 1975 was favorable.
1975 was also an excellent year for Italy. Wines of perfect balance and intensity were created in Piedmont and Tuscany. Barolo and Barbaresco occupy a leading position here. Extremely long-lived, fine white wines were produced in Germany.

Weather in the year 1975

In the frost-free spring, flowering was unproblematic. An overall dry, hot summer with some rain just before the harvest in September created fully ripe berries with a fairly high sugar content and thick skins. The resulting wines had ample fruit, high alcohol levels and tannins - ideal for long aging.

In contrast to previous years, 1975 was dry and warm. Some wineries didn't want to take any risks when the rain started in September and started the harvest a little too early. Hard wines could result. Those who waited longer got more maturity with smaller yields.

In the case of Italian wines, the quality of a vintage can be seen very well by whether the wines are classified as Riserva and Riserva Speciale. If this happens, the wine quality of the vintage is above average.

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 1975 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.

The filling level is decisive for the value. Upper shoulder to base neck is required. Medium shoulder is only acceptable for extremely rare, already valuable wines.
