1962 Wine and Port Vintage

Vintage Port:


1962-wine-gifts
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. There are some outstanding Colheita Ports that were made.
 
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.

Ryst Dupeyron Armagnac, 1962

Sale

Ryst Dupeyron Reserve Joseph Millesime vintage Armagnac
50cl bottle
Special Offer Was £199 | Now £159

The 1962 Dupeyron Armagnac is the expression of a single year and has a unique character associated with the year and the cask in which it has been stored. These vintages are bottled at the alcohol level in which they naturally come out of the cask. There is a wonderful contrast between the sweet and sour flavours of wood, amplified by the strong alcoholic degree. Rich palate feeling the alcohol and the concentration of dry plums, spicy with persistent flavour of rancio and of spices, but round, soft and long in the finish. The tannins are very present, but full-bodied and round.

The Maison Ryst-Dupeyon was founded by Joseph Dupeyron in 1905.

Anjou, 1962

Moulin Touchais, Anjou Réserve du Fondateur
BAdly damaged and Bin Soiled Labels

A beautiful sweet white wine from a producer renowned for producing wines lasting over a century. This wine is still maturing and is nearly at its peak. The wines of Moulin Touchais begin reaching their peak after twenty years, and many of the great vintages will take much longer. Vintages such as the 1953, 1959, 1964, 1969 are still maturing. The 1945, 1947 and 1949 have become classics.

Tasting Notes: Brilliant golden colour with pale gold hue. The nose is again restrained – a characteristic that appears with most of these wines. Aroma of honey, lemon and toffee apple. The palate is remarkably youthful; luscious with flavours of lemon, spice and honeycombe flavours followed by sugared pear.

Chateau Climens, 1962

Haut Barsac

**89 Points** ERobertParker
Beginning to deepen in color and take on an amber/golden color, the 1962 Climens must certainly be the best Climens of the sixties. A fragrant, roasted bouquet of melted caramel and brown sugar sauteed in butter is captivating. On the palate, the wine has rich, luscious, unctuous flavors that have remained crisp and lively because of good acidity. It is a worthy challenger to the d’Yquem in 1962.

Chateau Leoville Lascases, 1962

St Julien, 2nd Growth Classification (MAGNUM)

Léoville Las Cases is the most legendary wine of Saint-Julien: on a quality par with the Médoc's first growths, without the hefty price premium to match. It is a prime example of a Bordeaux 'super-second' - a second growth operating at a first growth level. Léoville Las Cases is also one of the largest, oldest and most picturesque of the Médoc's classified Bordeaux growths. Grapes are fermented at lower than average temperatures, which is partially responsible for the wines displaying some of the most exotic aromas and aromatic richness in the Médoc.

Dow's Port, 1962

Vintage Port - Cellar Reserve

The Dows 1962 is a very rare Vintage Port. The bottles were registered at the institute but never declared. Deeper orange red compared to the 1960. Fine nose of peppery sweet fruit with some balsamic tones, honey cake, beef soup and Indian spices. The fine elegant start of taste is smooth, refined and mouth filling. A well balanced vintage port with medium length. All there in a more approachable style. A very nice vintage port which was just bound to be forgotten once the strong classic 1963’s were ageing in the cellar. Last tasted July 2017. (Christies Tasting Note)

Quinta do Noval Nacional, 1962

Vintage Port
Level very top shoulder | good label and capsule

***98 Points- Extraordinary!***
Robert Parker Jr. Wine Advocate #107/Oct 1996***

Remarkably, the 1962 Nacional exhibited an even more opaque color than the 1970, as well as exquisite richness and concentration. Massive (but not in the Taylor style), this phenomenally concentrated, complex, still youthful vintage port is a tour de force in winemaking, and one of the greatest, can you believe this, young vintage ports I have ever tasted. This wine needs another 5-10 years to reach full maturity as neither the color nor aromatics reveal much development. It could easily have one-hundred years of longevity.

Recioto, 1962

Paolo Boscaini - Riserva Speciale

"Recioto," as in "Recioto della Valpolicella," refers to a dessert wine made from grapes that were dried on mats after picking. This process turns the grapes closer to raisins, concentrating the flavors. The wines are lovely and taste how you'd expect raisins-turned-wine to taste, rich and sweet.
