1916 Vintage wine

Our opinion on the 1916 vintage: a successful year overall

In a context of war, the wines of 1916 are rather successful but we note a quantity of harvest less, which brings to these wines an additional rarity.

The wines of Bordeaux are distinguished mainly by their powerful tannins, which give them the capacity to age, but they lack a certain sophistication. The red wines have a beautiful color, a full-bodied structure and a beautiful fruity expression. The sweet wines are almost comparable to the 1914 vintage, with great elegance for the Sauternes.

In Burgundy, due to an almost non-existent summer, the wines are banal and light, lacking character.

In the Rhone Valley, the vintage was a great success, with wines of similar quality to those of 1911 and 1914.

In Champagne, Piper-Heidsieck is the only house to dare to make a vintage in that year.
