The biggest sun spots, the brightest polar lights, and the greatest magnetic static known in history. These are behind what causes certain particularly outstanding years of wines.
On March 27, 1927 French Professor d’Arsonval presented a scientific study to the Academy of Sciences from research by Georges Lakhovsky. Lakhovsky attributed the high yield and best years as being the product of – no lie – the “Influence of Cosmic Waves On the Oscillations of Living Cells.” These waves peak and wane in years where outstanding vintages occur. These are predictable and flow in a well-known pattern.
For example, he began his research with 1847 as a high peak vintage year and showed that they occur at the same time every roughly 11.5 years. If we carry that forward in his research we get 1916-17, 1928-29, 1940-41, 1952-53, 1964-65, 1976-77, 1988-89, 2000-01, and 2012-13.
2012 is currently getting the biggest sun spots, the brightest polar lights, and the greatest magnetic static known in history. Check it out yourself as reported to the Academy of Science on March 28, 1927.
