1972 Wine and Port Vintage

Vintage Port: A good vintage that was not declared, some vintage port and single quintas were produced in this year. Port wines from 1972 are now fully mature but well stored examples will last for many years more, making them a great 50 year old wine gift for a birthday or anniversary.
 
Italian: Only a small crop of 1972 wine was produced in Italy and the wines are now very rare. The growing season was held back by inclement weather in the main Italian wine regions of Piedmont and Tuscany. Tuscany produced a small crop of Brunello and Chianti, generally characterised as having good colour, high acidity and some dryness. The best of the vintage originates from the more southerly regions.
 
Bordeaux:


1972-wine-gifts
Bordeaux 1972 wines are generally characterised by having good colour, with dryness and high acidity. However, the style was for early drinking and very few examples exist today. The growing season was difficult with the grape development held back by inclement weather - this did not allow the grapes to fully ripen by harvest time. However, sweet wines from Sauternes and Barsac of this year are very good.

Eiswein, 1972

Fred Pieroth Binger Bubenstud Eiswein Auslese

This 1972 Eiswein Auslese is very developed, powerful and quite tertiary nose with aromas of bruised apples, dried stone fruits, some golden raisins, a little bit of burnt sugar and a hint honeyed floral character. The wine is intense, acidic, moderately full-bodied and quite oily on the palate with pretty sweet flavors of pronounced golden raisins, some apple jam, a little bit of oxidative nuttiness, a hint of molasses and a touch of dried apricot. The high acidity makes the wine quite structured and keeps the sweetness at bay. The finish is quite developed and rather oxidative with long flavours.

Chateau Mouton Rothschild, 1972

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe (base of neck - labels very bin soiled)

Wassily Kandinsky label

Reviews: Stands up well for a 72. This had a deep red-brown color that was consistent throughout. It showed an intense nose of fresh asparagus which carried into the palate where it was joined by notes of celery. This exceeded expectations and was surprising drinkable for the amount of greenness it had. The half-bottle leftover the next day lost a lot of the asparagus/celery notes, having them replaced by some bell pepper and hints of cabernet fruit (cassis). One for the collectors.

Petrus, 1972

Pomerol (base of neck)

A rare 1972 Petrus.

1972 Vintage wine Tasted: Jun 2013
Pale ruby with some strong brown notes. Smells so rich and seductive! Perfumed and wonderfully heady. Light bodied and sweet. An aperitif-style Petrus! (Served with canapés on the terrace.) Clean. A very good start even if at the end it's a little dried out and not wholly fresh. Slightly dusty, tired finish. But a wine on the way down with a beautifully rich initial impact. Jancis Robinson

Taylor's Port, 1972

Quinta De Vargellas Vintage Port High shoulder level - very damaged label - vintage legible - re-waxed

A rare vintage port from 1972.

Little Vintage Port was made in 1972 - the weather having made life unusually tricky. Taylor's - the masters of wine-making - produced a rather fine single quinta wine in the Quinta de Vargellas 1972. Mellow and pale, nose of spiced rose petals, palate of raspberries and dried red berries it is a delicious glassful.
