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.

Golden colour with green reflections. Characteristic bouquet of Madeira with exotic wood, dry fruits, dates, vanilla, cacau and finetoasted oak. Medium sweet and full bodied, with a long toffee and vanilla aftertaste.
Blandy’s Colheita Bual 2002 was aged for 12 years in seasoned American oak casks in the traditional ‘Canteiro’ system, wherebythe wine is gently heated by warm air in the lofts of the company’s south-facing lodge in Funchal. Over the years the casks aretransferred from the top floor to the middle floor and eventually to the ground floor where it is cooler.

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!

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.
