1935 Vintage

Shipped as Vintage by many firms (split with 1934), the 1935s are classic refined wines, sweet and rich with fruit and tannins though without the sheer power of the 1934's. 

These wines are of course mature, but if well-cellared the best still have a good life ahead of them, as they are still showing good fruit and tannin integration with lovely balance and elegance.

Viticultural and Weather Conditions

Another generally dry winter, though some good rain fell on 15 December (1934), and no significant rain fell again until early April.  A cold spring led to a poor fruit set.  July and August were hot, with a little rain mid-August and almost no dew at night. 

The weather was hot and fine throughout September.  The harvest began from 23rd September under perfect weather conditions.

Winemaker's Overview

I am inclined to think that the quality and good colour inspires hope that the 1935 may prove good enough to make a Jubilee vintage - quantity is less than last year - but quality appears to be better.
