Wine vintage rating 2015

What was the vintage 2015 like?

2015 An excellent vintage in all European wine-growing regions.
2015 was very warm and very dry until July - the water stress keeps the grapes small and concentrated. This can result in alcohol-rich, bombastic wines. In August and September the necessary rains came, fortunately usually followed by a drying wind, so that the risk of rot was low. The individual parcels of the wineries developed very differently. High-quality wineries can handle this well these days and are not afraid of the additional effort.
As everywhere, the year was very very good in champagne too.
Also ideal in Piedmont - a warm, dry year for very dense, aromatic wines. Even better is Tuscany, which produced the best vintage in a long time.

Weather in the year 2015

2015 was the hottest year ever recorded in France. The winter was initially mild and dry. Then there was isolated freezing rain and in February there was plenty of snow. Spring began with a sudden rise in temperature in early March. Warm spring weather with some rain.

May and June remained very warm. In July it got downright hot and drought spread.

The heat and drought remained dominant, although some late summer rains helped the vegetation to reach optimal maturity.

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 2015 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.
