1998 Fonseca Port

Quinta Do Panascal Vintage Port (Single bottle 75cl)

In years when Fonseca does not ‘declare' a classic vintage, it selects the finest grapes from its own vineyards to yield a small quantity of this wine, which is produced exactly as a declared Fonseca Vintage. Beautifully structured and perfectly balanced this is an earlier maturing style than the classic vintage port.

Review:
Restrained on the nose, with licorice-like richness beneath; opulent, broad and sweet with fresh berry fruit and a touch of dark chocolate and spicy, peppery tannins on the finish.

Price: £49.00 (11 in Stock)

1998 Taylor's

Quinta de Vargellas Vintage Port, HALF BOTTLE (37.5cl) (Comes in a Leather Effect Box with Silk Liner as illustrated)

Very typical Taylor's style on the nose, rather reserved, spicy and stylish fruit. Gentle, and a lovely silkiness to at the start. Fine fruit, very stylish composition. Appropriate grip and texture. Lots of tannin evident on a second taste. This is rather good. From a Port Styles tasting. 16.5-17+/20 (Wine Doctor 2007).

Chateau Cissac, 1998

Medoc, Cru Bourgeois

Good colour, great legs and nose. Quite nice when opened. Perhaps a trace of liquorice and a hint of 'medicinal' character. After 3-4 hours - quite rich and aromatic with good cherry fruit and a touch of maraschino at the end. Tannins are soft and have integrated completely.

Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou, 1998

St Julien 2me Cru Classe

** 91 Points - Robert Parker **

"A supremely elegant, dense purple-colored effort, the 1998 reveals aromas of cassis, black raspberries, minerals, and currants. Precise, well-delineated, and medium to full-bodied, with magnificent purity and understated elegance, this noble, restrained wine reveals a tannic finish, suggesting 4-5 more years of cellaring is warranted" Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
