1917 Vintage wine
Our opinion on the 1917 vintage: a vintage of mixed quality
In Bordeaux, the 1917 wines are of fairly good quality, with remarkable concentration in their youth and a pronounced tannic presence. However, they can lack charm and sophistication, and can be perceived as a little harsh. Bordeaux wines from 1917 have a great capacity for ageing and can still surprise after more than a century.
Sauternes sweet white wines from the 1917 vintage are mellow, sappy and of great quality. Burgundy, on the other hand, produced no great wines in 1917.
In the Rhone Valley, 1917 was a good vintage, and very good wines were produced, similar to those of 1911 and 1914.
