1992 vintage guide for Medoc and Graves

drink now

A very difficult year with light, occasionally dilute wines

Weather Conditions

Despite a cold winter, a warm May led to an early flowering. But the summer was the wettest in fifty years. Yields shot up and green-harvesting became essential. Steady rain at harvest proved the last straw, and the wines were inevitably mediocre, light and with little structure.
Much Cabernet failed to ripen properly, giving wines a vegetal flavour. The best of them could be drunk with a little pleasure during the first five years.
