2002 Wine and Port Vintage

Vintage Port:


2002-wine-gifts

The 2002 Port Vintage was a potentially excellent one for those who picked their grapes before the rains which came late in the season, however, not so great for those who did not.
 
Italian: The 2002 was a poor vintage for Italian wines - only the best producers' wines will be reliable for quality.
 
Bordeaux: For the third year in a row Bordeaux pulled off yet another miracle vintage, thanks to a final bout of fine weather. The long, fine, sunny days of early autumn - and a great October, in fact - opened the way for some fine wines. The best-prepared chateaux made wines ranging from good to excellent. Their wines are strongly built and truly the “Highs” of the vintage. They have high acids (about 15% higher than normal), high alcohol content (over 13% natural alcohol), high tannin content, and high fruit content. They also have tight structure, dark colours, and lots of power. Quite full-bodied, these could make a great 18 year old wine gift for an anniversary this year.
 
Champagne: The 2002 is proving to be the finest Champagne vintage since 1996, more redolent of 1995 or 1990 in terms of the ripeness of fruit and power of structure.

2002 Chateau Giscours

Margaux, 3rd Growth Classification

The 2002 Giscours has a herbaceous, earthy nose with truffle notes intermixed with sweet cherries, plums, and currants are present in this soft, medium garnet wine. The wine is already evolved and best drunk over the next 10-15 years. The wine's plushness, and the concentration is very good.

Jancis 17.5/20
Dense, compact very Cabernet nose. Round and lively. Very brilliant fruit. Tannins on the finish. Quite a classical structure. Should age well. Pretty dry on the finish at the moment. But long. Giscours is no longer cheap, alas, though the quality has risen considerably.

Chateau Clos du Clocher, 2002

Pomerol

The 2002 Clos du Clocher is a properly velvet-textured Pomerol, showing some of the richness of the Merlot. This is a well-balanced, intensely rich wine, the black plum fruit flavours powering through the tannins, and with a good lift of fresh acidity to finish.

Chateau Haut Brion, 2002

Pessac Leognan 1er Grand Cru Classe
Magnum (1.5 Lt)

A 2002 vintage Bordeaux Wine from Château Haut Brion. This is a magnum sized bottle.

*** 92-94 Points - Robert Parker ***

Reviews
"Whether it’s a coincidence, or because in relatively cool years the first-growth terroirs are brilliant, Haut-Brion has turned out a beautifully classic, medium-bodied, precise and focused 2002 boasting a deep ruby/purple color as well as strikingly elegant aromatics (crushed stones, plums, black cherries, currants, figs, and earth). The wine possesses impressively measured power and elegance offered in a medium-bodied, nicely-structured, exceptionally pure format.

An outstanding 2002 vintage Bordeaux wine from Chateau Lafite Rothschild.
*** 94 Points Robert Parker ***
*** 94 Points Wine Journal ***

Reviews:
"A brilliant offering and a candidate for wine of the vintage, this is classic Lafite that reminded me somewhat of the 1976, although the vintage conditions were completely different. This is a medium-weight, quintessentially elegant style of Lafite with notes of lead pencil shavings/graphite along with blackcurrants, plums, and crushed rocks/mineral. Wonderfully pure, dense, with a deep ruby/purple color and loads of fruit, definition, and a long finish,

Chateau Monbousquet, 2002

Sale

Grand Cru, St Emilion, Bordeaux
Special Offer | Was £69.95 | Now £50

*** 90 Points - Outstanding Robert Parker **

A strong performance in a difficult vintage, the 2002 Monbousquet (60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Cabernet Franc) reveals abundant aromas of espresso, sweet black currants and cherries, damp earth, compost, and new oak. It is a medium to full-bodied, fleshy offering with light tannin as well as a long finish. Drink it over the next 10-12 years.

This is the home estate of Chantal and Gerard Perse, who have become the poster children for owners taking a less hallowed terroir and producing sumptuous, high quality wine. Readers should realize that Monbousquet is not meant to be cellared for 20-30 years.

Chateau Mouton Rothschild, 2002

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe

A vintage 2002 Bordeaux Wine from Château Mouton Rothschild.

*** 93 Points Robert Parker ***

"Dense purple to the rim, this wine exhibits the classic cassis aroma that is so characteristic of Mouton. Medium to full-bodied, tannic, powerful, and cut somewhat from the 1988 mold, this is a backward, chewy, well-endowed Mouton-Rothschild that will require considerable patience from those who purchase it. A blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot, the wine needs a good decade of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030+." Robert Parker, Wine Advocate 2005.

Chateau Rauzan-Segla, 2002

Margaux 2me cru Classe

A 2002 vintage Bordeaux Wine from Chateau Rauzan-Segla.

*** 90 Points - Parker ***
*** 91 Points - Wine Journal ***

Reviews:
"53% of the crop made it into this blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, and 2% Cabernet Franc. An outstanding wine with a dark ruby/purple color and more power, richness, and concentration than its younger sibling, the 2002 reveals outstanding potential, exhibiting plenty of concentrated black currant fruit with some vanilla, herbs, and licorice. It has about the same level of tannin as the 2003, but seems to have sweeter fruit and more mid-palate and length.

Dolcetto d'Alba, 2002

Sale

Mosesco - Prunotto
Last One | was £39 | Now £20

A native black grape variety of Northern Italy grown almost exclusively in the provinces of Cuneo and Alessandria in Piedmont. It is relatively easy to cultivate, although it is susceptible to fungal diseases. It ripens before Barbera and Nebbiolo and is often grown in high north-facing sites which would be unsuitable for Nebbiolo. The finest Dolcetto wines come from grapes grown on soils rich with white marls, especially those found on the right bank of the River Tauro. The wines generally are low in tannins and acidity and are usually fruity and fragrant, often with hints of almonds.

An outstanding 2002 vintage Bordeaux wine from Chateau Margaux.

93 Points - Robert Parker
95 Points - Wine Journal

"Performing better from bottle than at any time in cask (which of course is the objective of great winemaking, isn’t it?), this wine reveals a dense ruby/purple color in a style somewhat reminiscent of the 1988 but with more power, concentration, and volume. It has a beautifully elegant nose of black fruits intermixed with truffle, flower, and oak. The wine is medium to full-bodied, dense, with wonderful precision, freshness, and a long, full-bodied finish with impressive levels of concentration.
