1962 Vintage Report

Italian: An excellent vintage across the main regions of Piedmont and Tuscany. The 1962 wines produced exhibit a deep colour, rich intensity and have a good structure. The top quality Italian reds such as Barolo and Brunello are still drinking well today.
 
Bordeaux: 1962 wines represent an outstanding vintage that was overshadowed by legendary 1961 one! Consequently, it is one of the most underrated vintages still available. Good weather in the summer and harvest led to what, at the time was a record crop. The wines were delightful and well proportioned across all regions from the start and the top wines have maintained this quality to this day. The wines should last for a few more years.
 
Vintage Port: Not a general declaration, but some very good vintage and single quinta ports were made. Now fully mature, the 1962 Ports still have good structure and finish and will last a few more years.

Barbaresco, 1962

Villadoria Marchesi - Riserva

Still showing nicely after over 50 years. Still a bit of heat on the nose which otherwise was gorgeous with smoked meat and dried flowers. Soft tannins, some red fruits still around and very nice earthiness. An enjoyable bottle.

Chateau Lynch-Bages, 1962

Pauillac 5me Cru Classe

The 1962 Lynch Bages has been professionally stored since its original purchase by a Cambridge wine merchant.

The 1962 Lynch Bages is medium garnet-colored with considerable amber at the edge, the flavors were dry and angular, and there was considerable astringent tannin in the finish. Nevertheless, the bouquet was classic Pauillac and Lynch Bages - sweet and cedary, with plenty of herb-tinged black fruits, smoked meat, and game-like notes. It is a medium-bodied effort made in the old, elegant, slightly excessively tannic style of Bordeaux made during this period

Chateau Yquem, 1962

Sauternes 1er Grand cru Classe, Top shoulder

91 Points Wine Journal.

" Moderate Clear lucid gold with green tints. The nose is very elegant and well defined, touches of wet wool, honey, wood resin and barley sugar (a la Barsac). I wish it had more vigour and complexity, for it is rather overwhelmed by the Coutet and the Suduiraut. The palate is far better than the nose with a lovely creamy, harmonious texture with perfect acidity and balance. Citrus peel, fresh ginger, dried apricot, ginger and orange sorbet with noticeable residual sugar on the finish. This is probably an underrated Yquem given market prices, but the modest nose means I must temper my appraisal.

Clastidio (Lombardy), 1962

Angelo Ballabio

Born at the start of the century, in 1905, it is one of the most long-established Italian wineries and one of the oldest in the Oltrepò Pavese.

To speak of its founder, Angelo Ballabio, today, is to remember a rare man, loved and known as the “local authority” when it came to wine: a kind, simple man of exceptional knowledge thanks to an entire life spent making the best possible wine.

He was not one to buy a single bunch of grapes or a single litre of wine.
This is testified by the numerous national and international awards received by the Company since long-ago 1911.

It is our intention to produce wines that express and exalt the natural distinctiveness of our vineyards.

Dom Perignon, 1962

Champagne

"Light pale gold, deeper through the sides, glass served after poured, very little effervescence in this sample. Indelible aroma above the glass, delicate, floral and fragrant. Long, long, long and quite alive. Evolves over the course of an hour - calling everything from lemon curd to citron creme on a biscuit, and even a hint of piña. Fascinating and captivating. Beautiful wine. After an hour, a lilting caramelization rounded off this gorgeous glass. Pour it, taste it, and if you can wait an hour, you will not believe you are drinking champagne."

Dom Perignon, 1962

Oenotheque Champagne

The 1962 vintage’s maturity has been considered advanced enough to be placed among the Oenothèque wines.

That year’s winter has been particularly long and early summer did not improve this critical situation. Indeed, a strong period of storms and hails occurred at the usual time of flowering. As a result, the blossoming started later than the other years. September, however, was surprisingly warm and mild, which has been beneficial to the ripening of the grapes and wine quality.

Dom Pérignon Oenothèque 1962 is truly appreciated by wine lovers who have a preference for the complex aromatic palettes.

Dow's Port, 1962

Reserve Port

Over the centuries, the Dow winemakers have evolved a style that suits the house’s key vineyards; fermentations are a little longer, resulting in a drier Port Wine that has become the hallmark of Dow’s. Abundant fruit flavours with hints of ripe blackberries, give elegance and poise to Dow’s. The nose is deep and powerful with strong overtones of violets when young, these mature into fine cinnamon and rose-tea aromas with age.

Fonseca Port, 1962

Guimaraens Single Quinta Port

Deep red, the colour of black cherry juice; 70% opaque. Dusty apples on the nose, with some spicy tobasco (Adrian Bridge suggested this was very slightly corked). Sweet in the mouth, red jelly beans but little fruit. The jelly beans come through strongly on the mid-palate with just the slightest hint of wet cardboard (or was that my imagination?). A hot aftertaste with lots of ginger that lasts a long time before dark cherry skins and black chocolate make up the finish. This is a nice port.
