Kopke Port, 1983

Vintage Port

This is one of those noses where you can keep going back and finding things you think it smells like. I really like that. A bit punchy initially with it's alcohol, the finish is where this wine really shines. Starts off as fresh popcorn, turning hazelnuts and honey, then granola and brown sugar..... off into a 40-second long finish with various evolution in which I am sure different people would find different things. Truly delicious. This wine is very, very good. I love it when a wine forces you to think about it, and this does just that. Captivating, complex, intense and delicious.

Review:
Deep brick colour with amber halo. Rich aromas of dried fruits with suggestions of milk caramel and subtle molasses. Seductive, involving and delicate, replete with fine flavours of dried fruits. Silky texture and deliciously creamy.

Bas Armagnac, 1983

Du Chateau Lacaze , Vintage Armagnac (Price includes a dark mocha leather effect gift box with silk liner as illustrated)

Thick and exotic nose with rich vanilla notes, lavender syrup, marzipan coated stewed apples. Sweet orange cordial and Jaffa Cake jelly.
The palate is filled with plenty of floral notes (lavender) but after this has subsided there is a smooth spice and rich dark chocolate and cherry note like eating a huge chunk of Black Forest gateaux. With its depth of floral flavour this can best be described as a gentle giant.

Chateau Cos d'Estournel, 1983

St Estephe, 2nd Growth Classification

This is a very fine 1983: far superior on the nose to the 1988. Damson, mulberry and a touch of earth. Fine definition. Perhaps even a little mint leaf. The palate is well-defined with rounded, plummy damson fruit. Not complex but there is a vigor and charm here. Fresh acidity. Becomes quite minerally in the finish. Drinking superbly now, but it will not keep much longer.

Price: £95.00 (9 in Stock)
