Late Bottled Vintage Port - HALF BOTTLE 37.5cl Includes original gift box
Special release from the Ferreira Cellars.
When a wine is as dense, plummy and pretty as this, you're in business. It's somewhat round and fat, but it's rightly balanced by driving cherry fruit and bitter chocolate. An LBV rich enough to top off vanilla ice cream yet vital enough to be drunk by the glass is a good thing to have in the house.
Price: £38.95 (6 in Stock)
A very good port Port that has a very good complexity and mouth feel. Drinking well now as showing some maturity with a little tannin. This will hold for another decade, not as backward as some of the other port producers. 90/100 TC - Barros Tasting @ Barros Mar 2016.

Biondi Santi - Annata
Biondi Santi's brunello di Montalcino is an elegant, age-worthy wine which is known for its brilliant garnet hue and its bouquet of berries with underlying vanilla and spice. A hint of earthiness brings balance to the finest examples.

St Emilion Grand Cru classe
The 1994 is earthy with hints of spice and that classic Bordeaux finish - resolved tannins and medium bodied.

St Emilion Grand Cru
A great value rustic St Emilion. Medium garnet in colour, aromas of dried fruit such as raisin and fig with tertiary notes of wet leaves and vegetal, animal notes of meaty and farmyard, with a bit of sweet spice such as cinnamon. On the palate the wine is fairly simple with medium body and medium tannin.
Price: £49.95 (3 in Stock)
The 1994 Chateau Chasse-Spleen has fully developed with a medium aroma intensity of fresh red berries, dried black currants, prunes, sweet spice, cold coffee, stable floor, dry earth, gravel dust and dried herbs. At its peak and ready to drink now.

St Emilion 1er Grand Cru Classe
Robert Parker writes of this wine... "Dark ruby/purple-coloured, with a complex, spicy, tobacco, vanilla, blackcurrant, mineral, and floral-scented nose, the 1994 is a bigger, more structured wine than the 1993, its older sibling, but is it better? The wine finishes with mouthsearing tannin, which detracts from the otherwise impressive aromatics and sweet, medium-bodied, lush attack. As I have written many times in the past, Cheval Blanc has a tendency to fatten up, put on weight, and expand both aromatically and texturally with age, so perhaps this wine will move in that direction. If it does, my rating will appear unduly conservative.

Pauillac, 5th Growth classification
Made in an attractive, more muscular style, the 1994 displays a dark ruby/purple color, spicy, meaty, curranty aromas with a touch of cedar and earth, moderate tannin, and good flesh and structure. It may develop into an upper eighty point wine if the tannin melts away without a loss of fruit.

St Julien 2nd Growth Classification
" Ducru is on a roll, with fine efforts over recent vintages, including an exceptional 1994, spectacular 1995, and what looks to be an equally profound, super-concentrated 1996. A top-notch effort in this vintage, Ducru-Beaucaillou's 1994 displays a dark purple color, a textbook, cassis, mineral, licorice, and floral-scented nose, medium body, outstanding extract and purity, moderate tannin, and a persuasively rich, sweet, spicy finish. Everything is well-integrated (including the tannin). This should prove to be a classic St.-Julien." Robert Parker Wine Advocate 1997. Parker Rating 90/100 (outstanding) …
