Michael Broadbent explains how the vintage makes the wine and why vintages are so important. He answers basic questions about what a vintage is and what conditions make a good or poor vintage. He explores the effect of vintage not only on the style and quality of the wine, but also on the quantity produced in a given year. The vintage years are listed in chronological order for ease of reference, and there is also information on the character and readiness to drink of a wide array of wines. More than a century of wine vintages are covered. Quick-reference quality ratings for each entry are also included.
