Our precious advices to choose your bottle of the 1980 vintage wine:
- 1980: Wines of Bordeaux
Great vintage at Bordeaux in 1980 for the red wine. At Pomerol, Saint-Emilion, Margaux and at Pessac-Léognan, the 1980 vintage is especially a success.
Some references of the 1980 vintage:
- Château Lafleur 1980 at Pomerol is one of the greatest wine of this vintage, it can still conserve up to 2030.
- Haut-Brion 1980 at Pessac Léognan
- Château Margaux 1980 at Margaux
Conversely, not really a great vintage for the white wine. However, some prestigious Châteaux de Sauternes like Château d’Yquem , Château Gillette or Château Suduiraut still have their rank and still offer today really good tasting. For the dry white wine of Bordeaux, le Domaine de Chevalier Blanc is the reference of this vintage.
- 1980: Wines of Burgundy
Good vintage for the red wines of Burgundy which favored some rich appellations and also often the most expensive like the Grands Crus et Premier Crus d’Echezeaux, Romanée, Musigny, Chambertin or also Pommard.
Some great producers of 1980:
- La Romanée Conti
- Joseph Drouhin
- Jacques Prieurs
- Armand Rousseau
- Louis Jadot
Fine references for the white wines of Burgundy in 1980 with mythical appellations like:
- Domaine Raveneau at Chablis, Great Vintage closed in 1980
- Le Corton Charlemagne 1980 of Domaine Rapet is a reference of the 1980 vintage
- Le Puligny Montrachet 1980 is also a Premier Cru with les Pucelles du Domaine Leflaive
- 1980: Wines of Rhône
In the Rhône Valley, the year 1980 was interesting. 1980 give us great wines of conservation especially at Côtes Rôtie with La Landonne 1980 de Guigal which currently reach his maturity and for a few more years. Real success with the Châteauneuf du Pape 1980 with references like Rayas, Château de Beaucastel or also Clos des Papes 1980.
