Vintage Port - Half Bottle 37.5cl
Special Offer | Was £39 | Now £29.95
This 2007 Burmester Vintage Port from the very good 2007 Port Vintage has outstanding provenance! This bottle has been stored at the Burmester cellars on Porto since bottling until it was acquired by us earlier this year.
The 2007 Burmester is a beautiful mature tawny colour. On the nose it has cocoa, chocolate together with a hint of mint. On the palate this is quite complex - medium bodied with a perfect balance between the acidity, tannins and flavours, there is a little spiciness in the mouth that adds to the experience. Long, long finish. This is in a good place and should hold well for a couple of decades.

St Julien 2me Cru Classe
This 2007 vintage Bordeaux wine from Ducru Beaucaillou was tasted blind at Farr Vintners Bordeaux tasting; it has a generous red cherry and wild strawberry bouquet armed with very good fruit concentration. The palate is medium-bodied, fleshy in the mouth with slightly lower acidity than its peers. Harmonious and velvety smooth, there is a fair amount of new oak here, but it is very well integrated with a caressing finish. It still has that Burgundian flair. This is excellent considering the growing season. Tasted March 2015.

La Ferme du Mont, Châteauneuf du Pape Côtes Capelan
This outstanding Chateauneuf-du-Pape has scored an impressive 95+ points in critical reviews.
96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Outer quote mark The dense ruby/purple-colored, full-bodied 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cotes Capelan is an outrageously rich, complex wine exhibiting beautiful creme de cassis, kirsch, licorice, forest floor, and spring flower-like aromas. It is fresh, voluptuous, and opulent in the mouth, but the fresh acids and vibrancy give it exceptional precision as well as a refreshing style despite its weight, richness, and length. This is a superb, young Chateauneuf du Pape from an up-and-coming star of the appellation.

Vintage Port MAGNUM
An outstanding 2007 Vintage Port Wine from Croft. Please note: this is a rare Magnum bottle of wine - 1.5 liters.
"There is a nice limpidity on this Croft 2007. It is not the power that strikes you but the purity with black cherries, liquorice, violets and a hint of iodine. Very tight and focused. The palate is full-bodied with chewy tannins on the entry, pure blackberry, raspberry, white pepper and Asian spice towards the finish. Very fine focus, very pure and harmonious. Sensuous finish but it just tapers away when I need more grip and assertiveness. Still, this is a lovely Croft." - Neil Martin, Wine Journal, 93/100 Points (Outstanding).

Quevedo Vintage Port 2007 is an intense ruby colour. The nose has a lush aroma of violet nuances with marked presence of plum, grapes and cassis. The palate is dense and rich in fruit, well balanced with good tannins. It is a port full of vigour, full-bodied and with a very long finish.
Quevedo is a family run winery, where the new generation of owners, Oscar and Claudia are innovating to produce some amazing ports. Not widely known in the UK but very highly regarded amongst port aficionados this is one to stock up on.

"The 2007 Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port is a blend of multiple sites meant to express the house style in a great year. It displays a superb aromatic array of pencil lead, Asian spices, incense, blackberry, and floral notes. Dense, suave, and opulent on the palate, this is a mouth-filling, intense, layered wine that has superb grip and concentration. It will effortlessly age for 25+ years and still be delivering pleasure at age 50." Wine Advocate 2010

This 2007 Vintage Port is opaque, purple black in colour with a narrow violet rim. Characteristically stylish and racy, with a nose of dense blackcurrant and woodland fruit overlaid with discreet herbal nuances and scents of violet and rose petals. As usual, the classic Taylor elegance and understatement conceal the wine’s energy and vigour. On the palate, it displays the lean, sinewy and tightly knit tannins, which are so much a feature of the Taylor style, and the vibrant and clearly delineated fruit flavours, which are the hallmark of the 2007 vintage.

Quinta de Vargellas Vinha Velha
The 2007 Taylor Vargellas Vinha Velha is a more introverted Taylor’s Vintage, an earthy bouquet with touches of orange essence developing in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, good backbone, quite reserved and composed at the moment. This is not a flamboyant Vinha Velha, but there is a very attractive, slightly biscuity quality towards the finish. Superb. The Vinha Vehla are five plots located in the heart of Quinta de Vargellas. The vines being between 80 and 120 years of age. Strict selection has led to a wine of stunning complexity, power and richness. This is one that will be at its peak 50 years hence.
