vintage

In its simplest term, a vintage is the year a wine was produced. This matters because the vine behavior (phenology, yield, grape quality potential) varies from one year to another. This variability is the result of changing climatic conditions and is known in viticulture as the vintage effect. These tables will give you a quick overview on the characteristics of recent Bordeaux vintages.
