1961 Taylor Fladgate Very Old Single Harvest Port 1961

Core of walnut brown surrounded by a broad rim of pale gold with olive highlights. Powerful nose of extraordinary complexity and opulence, revealing multiple nuances and dimensions of aroma. First to emerge is a mellow redolence of molasses, dried fig and sultana, mingling with nutty marzipan aromas. As the wine opens up, scents of cedarwood and dried tobacco leaf appear, together with subtle spicy notes of black pepper and cardamom and a fleeting fresh hint of citrus. All this is enveloped in an powerful aura of oaky vanilla aroma, the legacy of decades of ageing in cask. In the mouth the wine is dense, round and concentrated, with a thick velvety texture, quite rich and sweet on the mid palate but then lifted by a burst of fresh acidity on the finish, which is crammed with lingering flavours of butterscotch, almond, orange marmalade and dried fruit. A beautifully balanced wine, still clean and fresh in spite of its many years of maturing in wood. Drink now - 2045. A wonderful 60th vintage wine gift for a 1961 anniversary.

From the outstanding 1961 vintage and scoring 96/100 Parker points, "tasted at the chateau with Henri Lurton. Having had the 1961 Brane-Cantenac once before, my hopes were not astronomical since it never made a positive impression. However, this ex-chateau bottle is totally convincing. It has a mature hue. The nose is utterly compelling with black fruits, early grey, peppermint and violets with wonderful delineation and lift. The palate is divine: succinct balance and poise, touches of tea leaf and bay leaf inflecting the finish that has great depth and such fine tannins that blind, I would suspect this to be Château Margaux."

1961 Richebourg Grand Cru 1961 Lebegue-Bichot

From the very good 1961 vintage, " I have been warned on several occasions to stay away from the slippery slope known as Grand Cru Burgundy. Tonight I slide further down the hill. I had never tasted a mature Richebourg before tonight. This producer is very "old school" which was fine with me. An "ah-so" removed the cork without incident. The color of the wine was ruby with only a slight amount of bricking at the rim. The nose was captivating from the start with mushrooms, damp earth, and a slight anise smell. Nice acidity and the typical earthiness you would expect was present on the palate. After about 30 minutes, a sweetness of fruit lingered in your mouth as the finish lasted a good 45-60 seconds. This is definitely a food wine and it paired absolutely beautifully with dry aged squab. In fact, this may have been the best pairing I have ever had with mature Burgundy (even better than duck). It took me over 15 years to achieve my Burgundy epiphany. I definitely should have listened to my many mentors and stayed far away from this devilish region. All I can say is it is now too late."(Wine Spectator forum notes) Drink now - 2027.Very bin soiled label. A wonderful 60th vintage wine gift for a 1961 anniversary.
