A potentially excellent vintage for those who picked their grapes before the rains which came late in the season, however not so great for those who did not.
The 2002 was a poor vintage for Italian wines - only the best producers' wines will be reliable for quality.
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 17 year old wine gift for an anniversary this year.
