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 (1 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.

From Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Biondi Santi is a renowned name across the world, yet it remains an anachronistic wine, at odds with the vogue for rich, fruit-laden Brunello's that are lavished in new oak. Since the 19th century, the estate's raison d'être has been to fashion long-lasting wines, built to age over a century." (Producer Profile)
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.
Brunello di Montalcino is one Italy's most famous and prestigious wines.

St Julien 4me Cru Classe
Beychevelle is on the rebound as evidenced by what they have accomplished over recent years. This light to medium-weight wine exhibits a dark ruby color, and a straightforward, redcurrant-scented nose with toast and earth in the background. Low acidity, high tannin, and sweet fruit result in a good, but impression.
Price: £89.95 (5 in Stock)
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 (1 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.

Ch. du Tertre’s 1994 is a very successful effort in a difficult vintage. The 1994 shows a dark plum/ruby colour with a little lightening at the edge. A nose of roasted herbs intermixed with black cherry, plum, fig, and currant also has a hint of chocolate and earth. Medium-bodied, with ripe but noticeable tannin, excellent definition

Pauillac 5th Growth Classification
*** 90 Points - Robert Parker ***
"Grand-Puy-Lacoste is the drinker's Pauillac. It is not an investment wine (having been largely forgotten by the trophy hunters and investors looking to make a quick buck), although certain vintages (1982 and 1990) have tripled in price. Grand-Puy-Lacoste, usually loaded with character and personality, has enjoyed three fine vintages in 1993-95, with each of these years under-priced for such quality. The 1994 has turned out to be an outstanding effort for this estate. The wine reveals even more flesh than it did prior to bottling, as well as the high tannin that marks many of this vintage's wines.
