The Barros 2002 Vintage Port has a 95% opaque centre, just starting to change colour on the rim. Lovely and open on the nose, softly fruity. Silky texture on the palate with lovely fruit and a good balance. The flavours and complexity grows really well with violets all over the palate. A lingering aftertaste and finish which is full of slightly spicy red licorice. 90/100. www.ThePortForum review.

The Chateau Charmail 2002 is still a very dark red in colour with no transparency, a hint of a watery rim! Nose of pure black currant fruits, quite intense and some leather, charming! Quite meaty on the palate, driven by the dark fruits, this echoing the nose very nicely, very complete! At this moment, I want a good slice of roast beef or braised oxtail, even cottage pie will pair it well!

Cru Bourgeois Haut Medoc
From the very good 2002 vintage, this wine has a glorious, flamboyant nose of deep cassis and creamy oak and it is plump and juicy on the palate with a huge, long finish.

Reviews "One of the candidates for wine of the vintage, this beauty has a dense purple color to the rim and a classic, noble nose of graphite intermixed with black currant, spice box, licorice, and red and black fruits. Medium to full-bodied with exceptional precision and definition, this beautifully textured wine stands out as one of the most successful wines of this irregular vintage. A brilliant effort, it should be at its best between 2008 and 2020." PArker Wine Advocate, 2005
"Just a fantastic wine…clean, fresh, bright and bushy tailed on the nose with blackberry, raspberry, cedar-wood and a real palpable sense of terroir.

Reviews for 2002 Chateau Lascombes
A candidate for one of the top wines of the vintage, Lascombes has turned in a brilliant effort with a deep ruby/purple color as well as gorgeous aromas of plums, cassis, black cherries, and flowers. It boasts a terrific texture, medium to full body, an expansive, multi-layered mid-palate and a tremendously pure finish revealing nicely integrated wood, acidity, alcohol, and tannin. This is a beauty of precision and power. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2020.

St Estephe 2me Cru Classe
2002 Chateau Montrose
90/100 An elegant yet richly fruited style of Montrose with medium body, sweet notes of black fruits, leather, dried herbs, and earth, this round wine is not profoundly concentrated, but is well-made, with excellent depth, ripeness, and overall length.

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.

Produced using a careful selection of grapes from the Garda Classico Rosso. The grapes once harvested are placed in a “fruttaio” (a well ventilated room) to dry out, they are pressed and the wine is “rested” in wooden barrels for a year. Here is a wine with a deep translucent red colour and spicy perfume. A harmonious wine, dry and velvety with a hint of tartness. Served with spiedo (a local spit roast from the city of Brescia and Lombardy) with game and roast meats.
