A Quick Vintage Guide

 

Vintages can be really important when choosing wine. We are currently working on an easy guide to choosing wine by vintage. Whether you want to drink it right away, hold onto it for a couple of years or cellar it to age, we will offer our advice. In the meantime, please do get in touch with any question you may have. 

Bottle size plays an important roll. This guide is made assuuming a 75cl bottle.  If you would like to see how wines evolve try buying half bottles (37.5cl) if you if plan to cellar wines for a long time term then the 150cl bottles or larger as wines evolve and develope slower in these sizes.
