1987 Vintage Report

Italian: 1987 was a good vintage for the Italian region. The wines produced are generally of good consistency. Barolos are now fully mature and ready for drinking.
 
Bordeaux: 1987 wines are generally under-rated as a vintage. Had it not been for 14 straight days of rainfall in early October, then the harvest would have been a great one. The wines are characterised by being light to medium bodied, ripe and fruity with low tannins and low acidity. 1987 wines are generally overlooked in favour of the great vintages that followed in 1988-1990. However, those producers who adopted strict selection policies produced some very good wines which still make good drinking but should be consumed in the next few years.
 
Spain: A highly respected vintage of very good quality. The highest and latest-picked vineyards gave the best grapes – so Rioja Alavesa benefited.
 
Vintage Port: The 1987 Port was very close to being a fully-fledged Vintage. The port wines are balanced and elegant and will provide fine drinking in the medium-term. The result is that the consumer can buy Ports at a fraction of the price of what they would have cost.

Through many generations, the Company was run by several representatives of the Kopke family, obtaining an excellent reputation for its wines.

30 Year Old Offley

Tawny Port ( Comes in Offley thick carton Box as illustrated)

Tasting notes
Amber in colour, with appealing greenish hints. Its bouquet is very intense and complex, with notes of caramel, mocha, nuts and tobacco leaf. This is a very well-balanced and unctuous wine that shows a delicate structure and sublime finish.

Production method
Hand-picked grapes undergo stalk-removal and crushing before fermentation, under controlled temperature, with skin maceration. The addition of wine alcohol at the ideal moment sets the balance between the wine's body and bouquet. Ageing in wooden casks in the cellars of Vila Nova de Gaia, the final blend results from a selection of wines between 25 and 40 years.

Chateau d'Angludet, 1987

Margaux Cru Bourgeois

This is a fragrant Margaux at its best. Lovely lifting scents of tobacco, redcurrant and cedar. The wine is only light to medium bodied and tastes a touch dilute but has a delicious mature cedary flavour with plenty of red fruits and a delicious soft texture - loads of development over a 3 hour period. Nice wine to be appreciated for its delicate nuance and charm rather than power and concentration.

** 88-90 Points - WIne Journal **

Reviews:
" Light brick core. Tawny rim. Delicate leaf/minty nose. Quite earthy and mature on palate. Well-balanced, better than Lafite. Moderate concentration but quite austere and classic. Drink soon. Tasted amongst in a collectors gnome garden in Switzerland at 10am! Tasted again at the SuperBOWL and making perfect sense with a leg of lamb. A slightly diffuse, tobacco scented nose followed by a palate of moderate concentration with cedar and tobacco. Quite a soft texture but with vibrant acidity. A gentleman’s claret."

Croft Port, 1987

Quinta da Roeda Vintage Port

A mature nose, chocolatey, coffee, medicinal hints. The palate is very appealing - a surge of delicious berry fruit, sweetness upfront, that dissipates into a quite mature mid-palate with hints of mint, chocolate and prunes. Big, full-bodied. But the richness quickly subsides into a dried, prune aftertaste. At its best now!

Merlot, 1987

Bosco Romagno - Zambotto

Merlot can also produce a delightful and intriguing pure varietal wine. While Merlot has a long history of use as a blending wine, pure Merlot wines have been relatively slow in gaining momentum in Italy. That too has changed and today some of the world’s best Merlot wines bear Italian labels. The Trentino wine is from well-positioned and carefully maintained hillside vineyards near the city of Trento in northeastern Italy.
