1966 Vintage Wine and Port Gifts

The weather in 1966 in Bordeaux was very favourable with with good weather patterns. The winter was mild with fine weather hitting the region by Spring which produced good flowering. June was cool and dry and there was some rain in July. August was a dry cloudy month but the harvest was saved by a lovely hot September which led to the harvest starting in early October. All the major regions of Margaux, St Estephe, Pauillac, St Julien and the Medoc produced powerful wines with great ageing potential.1966 was a very good year for Red Burgundy and it as also a very good vintage in the Northern Rhone and a good vintage in the South of the Cote du Rhone. In Portugal, it was an outstanding Vintage Port year producing Vintage Ports with superb structure, filled with fruit and tannins. James Symington of the Symington Port Group, "Musts everywhere showed higher than average readings and the colour is excellent. Yields on the other hand are the lowest for many years, some Quintas being as much as 30% down on their '64/5 productions.We are delighted with the prospects for the 1966's. It will be surprising indeed if 1966 does not prove to be an excellent vintage for Port."

1966 Taylor Fladgate Very Old Single Harvest Port 1966 (Taylor's Wooden Box)

Broad amber rim, with olive highlights, around a mahogany gold core. Very fine complex nose with notes of orange flower and marmalade, a discreet vanilla oakiness and warm nutty notes of walnut, macadamia and marzipan, against a sumptuous background of molasses and butterscotch. The palate is smooth and honeyed but lifted by a crisp acidity. The luscious flavours of fig, damson and apricot confit persist into the long mellow finish. A beautifully balanced and finely constituted wine displaying all the nuanced and multi-layered character of long wood ageing.

94/100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate "The 1966 Single Harvest Tawny Port (i.e., a Colheita) is a traditional blend, aged in French and American oak. It comes in at 183 grams per litre of residual sugar. Surprisingly rich and fresh, this seems younger than its age. The complexity here is not quite as great as with some and the nuances of molasses and the like are controlled. On the other side of the coin, it has a rather sensual texture, finishing with a sugary burst. Underneath is the expected acidity and a bit of pop. Overall, it is rather seductive and quite delicious." A wonderful 50th vintage wine gift for a 1966 anniversary.
