Bordeaux 1994

1994 Bordeaux — Pomerol Hits the Mark

1994 in Bordeaux proved to be quite an improvement from the previous three vintages (though to be fair, there was no where to go but up). Bud break and flowering were right on time to start the year, and the summer gave way to what vintners hoped would be a perfect growing season. However, September rains — heaviest on the 14th and 17th — drenched vineyards, making for a difficult harvest. The most successful wines were from the Right Bank, where Pomerol was the most noteworthy. In general, the Left Bank wines are a bit more austere, lacking the charm and elegance of the vintages that would follow; the Médoc wines in particular can be slightly green. Initial reviews of this vintage were promising — perhaps a tad over-enthusiastic — and resulted in 1994 Bordeaux being the first in three years to be offered as futures. In retrospect the Right Bank wines from Pomerol have backed up the hype, showing well to this day.
