Rare vintage wine of the year 1955
Vintage wines of 1955 from the most famous wineries of Bordeaux and Burgundy, Piedmont and Tuscany.
Only the top one per cent of all wine made has the ability to improve for decades.
In general, more expensive wines are designed to become better with age. Most inexpensive wines do not benefit from aging.
The most obvious candidates for long-term ageing in bottle are reds made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Sangiovese and Nebbiolo.
The classified vineyards of the wine region Bordeaux, the Grand Cru Classé estates, have deep gravel soils with an excellent drainage.
Here the aristocratic grape varities Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot found every year ideal conditions. The vines in the best vineyards are 30-70 years old!
In Piedmont the small single vineyards of the best producer of Barolo and Barbaresco are planted with Nebbiolo.
The wine region around the villages of Barolo, La Morra, Neive and Barbaresco create classical long-living red wines.
Nebbiolo wines require years of aging to balance the tannins with other characteristics.
The Sangiovese grape generate the long-living, concentrated Chiantis, Supertuscans and Brunellos di Montalcino.

The vintage 1955 in Bordeaux is often underrated. The growing season was hot and sunny. Some rain in september came at right moment and helped the dry summer 1955 to reach maximum levels of ripeness.
Château Mouton Rothschild (1953 with the label created by Georges Braque) in Pauillac and Château Cheval Blanc in Saint Emilion produced great wines.
But also the other first and second growths of Médoc and the important Saint Emilion and Pomerol wines showed excellent results with the vintage 1955.
