A rather contrasting vintage in Bordeaux: two long weeks of rain fell on the vineyards before the harvest, the Cabernet was then drowned. On the other hand, the Merlot was harvested just before the torrential rains, resulting in fruity and fatty wines in the Saint Emilion and Pomerol appellations espcially the Château Calon Segur 1987, Ausone 1987 and Château Clinet 1987. The wines of Pessac Léognan also offered rather successful wines, such as the Château Haut Brion 1987 and La Mission Haut Brion 1987.
Sauternes wines are fruity but with limited aging potential. In Burgundy, the red wines of 1987 are of good quality, fatty wines, elegant and with a soft tannin. Among them, excellent wines the Domaine Joseph Roty in Gevrey Chambertin or the Domaine Dujac in Morey Saint Denis. In Rhône Valley, only the Côte Rôtie has produced the best wines.
The purchase of 1987 vintage wine is a very good idea for many occasions: an anniversary, wedding gift, celebration of an event An old wine is a great time travelling machine. 1987 Old wine, 1987 Grand Cru? All bottles of 1987 wine are in stock and shipped the same day for next day delivery.
