1954 Bordeaux wine is the product of a bad growing season that ended with an equally poor or worse harvest. 1954 Bordeaux wine should be avoided today. The 1954 Bordeaux growing season was cool and extremely damp.  September got off to a decent start, giving vintners false hope as even September was also consumed by more periods of steady cold and rain. The Bordeaux harvest officially started October 10. 1954 Bordeaux wine was poor the day it was released and should not be purchased today for drinking. 1954 is better remembered for launching the career of Elvis Presley who produced his first recording for Sun Records with Scotty Moore on guitar and Bill Black on bass, “That’s all Right Mama.” The track came out July 1954. Trust me on this, that song has held up much better than any 1954 Bordeaux wine!
