Wine vintage rating 1992

What was the vintage 1992 like?

1992 Italy better, Bordeaux quite inconsistent with elegant loners Like the year before, 1992 also offered significant weather contrasts from dry and warm to damp and wet. Too much water! The Bordeaux can be aromatic and elegant if not too much emphasis was placed on over-concentration in the cellar.
In Italy, the course of the year was actually optimal, but in the end storms destroyed a large part of the harvest. The result in 1992 was a small amount with very good quality.
Burgundy produced a good, elegant vintage.

Weather in the year 1992

Lots of snow in winter and a very dry spring. The Loire hardly carried any water. In May it got very hot - 34°C in Bordeaux.

June was rainy, in August several hot days were followed by storms, in September it rained. A consistently difficult year with a wet summer. The vintage makes clear the development that wine technology and competence have achieved in the meantime. Early detection of rot and strict sorting out of unripe grapes has actually saved many wines.

In Italy, the growth of the vines was better than in Bordeaux. The summer of 1992 was perfect, except for the grape harvest when it rained too much.

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 1992 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.
