2002 Wine Vintage Report

2002 Bordeaux :

2002 Wine :For the third straight year Bordeaux pulled off yet another miracle vintage, thanks to a final bout of fine weather. The long, fine, sunny days of early autumn—a great October, in fact—opened the way for some fine wines. The best-prepared chateaus, 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 colors, and lots of power. They are quite full-bodied.

2002 Chateau Rieussec

2002 is a very fine year for this region, possibly superior to any of the vintages between 2000 and 1991. The wines possess plenty of botrytis, but neither the impressive definition nor supreme elegance of the 2001s.

This fruity, up-front St.-Julien lacks the structure found in most 2002 Medocs, but it compensates for that with a supple, fruit-forward style, and excellent, herb-tinged, leathery, blackberry and cherry notes.
