The vintage year 1944 had influence on the history of the bordeaux as a weak wine year. After the good 1943s wines the rainy summer made the winegrowers' bothered by the war life even harder. It thin wines arose without ample ageing potential. Only still with luck to find well drinkable copies.
However, very good port year declares house almost of none. One concentrated on the leading vintage 1945.
1944 is a forgotten year in Germany. By the war hardly wines were produced. Very rare!
