Harvest status: Dates: early, from September 13th.

Abundance: adverse weather severely reduced the harvest.

Quality: very ripe and concentrated berries with thick skin and a high sugar content. The grapes have a lot of taste.

Overall quality of the vintage: excellent. Probably one of the best years of the century. Generally powerful, very concentrated, extremely tannic wines, with considerable ageing potential. Some are dry, but characterised by the depth of their colour, their opulence and concentration. Others, less successfully vinified, lack cellar time and have a tendency to dry out. Most of the 1945s require about fifty years before the dry tannins become supple. The best of them will continue to improve.
