1960 Wine Vintage Report

1960 Vintage Port :

A very good vintage that was declared by all of the major Port houses, port wines from 1960 have now settled into glorious old Vintage Ports of the very highest quality. After more than 40 years bottle-ageing, these wines have a superb combination of lovely mature fruit combined with the elegance that only this length of time in bottle can give. An incredible 59 year old wine gift for a birthday or anniversary, they will last for decades to come or offer a superlative drinking experience now.

1960 Italian :

The 1960 is rated as an average vintage for Italian wines. Heavy-weight, longer lived wines from 1960 such as Barolo and Amarone are still drinking well - they still exhibit a good structure and have deep colour with rich intensity.

1960 Bordeaux :

The vintage suffered from two rain-filled months of August and September. The wines produced in 1960 were very delicate and light in Bordeaux and only the first growth and Grand Cru wines will now be drinkable. The great estates from Sauternes and Barsac produced some good sweet wines in what was generally a depressed decade for the region.
