1955 Wine Vintage Report

1955 Vintage Port :

1955-vintage-port The 1955 port vintage produced outstanding, fruity wines for long-term ageing - a real pleasure to drink, now or in a few decades time. One of the most underrated Vintages of the 20th Century. Declared by most of the major Port houses.
The 1955 vintage ports are characterised by having outstanding fruit and being superbly balanced wines, fruity, smooth and concentrated. They are a real pleasure to drink now, but the best will last well into the 21st Century if well cellared.

1955 Italian :

The 1955 wine vintage is part of a run of solid vintages between 1954 and 1958. The main regions of Tuscany and Piedmont produced rich, full bodied wines. The 1955 wines are mature but heavy-weights such as Brunello and Barolos are going on strong.

1955 Bordeaux :

The 1955 wine vintage is now considered to be outstanding. Good weather conditions led to a large healthy crop. For many years the wines from the 1955 vintage were much maligned for being harsh and impenetrable. However, five decades of maturation have softened them and they are only now at their peak. They will remain at their peak for many years to come. The wines are characterised by being full bodied and rich.
