Wine vintage rating 2007

What was the vintage 2007 like?

2007 Very good Piedmont vintage with very nice Barolo and Barbaresco. 2007 is an excellent vintage for Piedmontese wines: elegant and rich in typical rose, liquorice and toasted aromas. It was a very hot year in Piedmont, with drought problems looming. Rain and cool nights in August saved the acidity and freshness of the wine. Excellent, dense red wines characterize 2007. In Tuscany, the warmer regions like Montalcino produced dense, early-ripening wines.
Bordeaux is seen as problematic, with a wet summer partly offset by a September of very good weather. The 2007 wines were left out for a while - now famous wines can be drunk very well at affordable prices. Burgundy produced very classic wines - soft and elegant.
Austria: August was very hot and dry, comparable to the 2003 vintage. Two weeks after the start of the harvest, heavy rain caused enormous problems for the quality of the grapes. Another bad weather front ended the late summer of the year and at the same time the grape harvest on September 25th.

Weather in the year 2007

A very mild start to the year. Then came a storm and more snow, which melted quickly in warm temperatures. In France, it was the warmest winter since 1950. The spring that followed was warmer than average. Heat often leads to the formation of storms. This was also the case in 2007. The early flowering was inconsistent. The wet, cool May led to trickling and small berries.

The unsettled, stormy and rainy weather did not stop and lasted until July. With very short interruptions, the summer of 2007 was characterized by cool temperatures and frequent rain. Only August and September became sunny and hot.

The frost set in very early in the fall.

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 2007 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.
