1962 Wine and Port Gifts

1962 wine and Port Gift Suggestions

Vintage Port: Although the year was not a general declaration, 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 with good cellaring.

Italian: An excellent vintage across the main regions of Piedmont and Tuscany. The 1962 wines produced exhibit a deep colour, rich intensity and 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 unfortunately overshadowed by legendary 1961. 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. These make the perfect 60 year old wine gifts for a birthday or anniversary.

1962 was an outstanding year for Italian and Bordeaux wines. One of the best vintages of the 20th Century! Very good for ports, Armagnac and Madeira.

1962 BordeauxAlthough most of the 1962 wines are now fading slowly, the top examples continue to shine through offering concentrated, ripe fruit with amazing bouquets. The crop was tiny and there are very few examples available. Provided the bottles have been stored correctly these wines should last for another few years.

1962 Italian wine In Italy, 1962 is considered to be one of the greatest vintages of the 20th century. The wines from Piedmont (Barolo, Barbaresco and Barbera) and Tuscany (Chianti, Brunello) are outstanding. Now fully mature these wines, with careful cellaring, will still keep for many years to come. A 1961 Italian Wine would make a perfect gift for a 50th Anniversary.
