Champagne Vintage 1983

A harsh winter continued into spring, which was cold and damp, resulting in delayed flowering. The vineyards were spoilt with sunny and warm weather throughout much of the summer, with enough rainfall to keep the crop from drying out. A late harvest commencing on September 26th produced a huge crop (15,012 kg/ha) of near-perfect grapes - rich and ripe, with great balance and length. The Pinots Noirs were aromatic and powerful, and the Chardonnays stood out for their finesse and body. Despite the low potential alcohol level (8.9%), Champagnes from 1983 have proven themselves with age. It is an underrated vintage whose wine's have a classically lean structure and beautiful freshness. Most 1983s peaked a while ago but many late-disgorged cuvées such as Charles Heidsieck Collection Crayères bottles may bring significant pleasure today.
