We are delighted to offer a UK exclusive on Burmester Colheita Ports.
"(2015) Lovely dark caramel colour, with some truffle and tea notes, edges of olive and green fruits (fig). The maturity on the palate is obvious, again with fabulous sweetness and brown sugar richness, Muscovado and walnuts, but the hallmark of the fresh orange and lemon acidity plays against that and the coffee and walnut cake sweetness and richness."

Colheita Port (Includes Kopke presentation box)
***96 Points- Mark Squires, eRobertParker.com #223 March 2016***
The 1966 Colheita Tawny Port was bottled in 2015 with 126.3 grams per liter of residual sugar, and comes with a bar top cork (as is typical here). As we start getting seriously old in the lineup from Sogevinus this issue, this shows what you get with increasing age: the superb concentration of flavor, the long, intense finishes and the complex medley of flavors that old Tawnies deliver effortlessly. That, to me, is what makes them worth the extra bucks. If some of the youngsters lean more to caramel, this adds more molasses with a touch of Brandy in the background.

Single Harvest Tawny Port (Comes in original Taylor's Box as illustrated)
Taylors have just announced a limited release of their 1966 Single Harvest Tawny Port. This is a new release of a rich, mellow and spicy 1966 Single Harvest Port.
It is presented in a classic Taylor’s frosted bottle, and packaged in a high quality beech-wood box.
During its five decades of ageing in oak casks, this wine has taken on an attractive pale mahogany colour with olive amber highlights. On the nose the wine displays fine oaky aromas and complex spicy, nutty, cigar box notes against a warm mellow background of butterscotch and molasses. The smooth velvety palate is lifted by a crisp acidity which gives the wine an attractive freshness in spite of its age.

Terre del Barolo - Riserva Speciale (MAGNUM BOTTLE)
Barolo is known as the 'king of wines' and is made from the Nebbiolo grape. Heady aromas of rose, leather, vanilla, cherry, pepper, cranberry, strawberry. Fruits are perfectly knitted with the tannins and acidity. It's a powerful wine but remarkably subtle. Don't underestimate it and certainly serve it with food to show at it's best. Nebbiolo has naturally high tannins and acidity, so it will take on full-flavoured, rich foods no problem at all.

The Armagnac is made from a blend of Baco and Ugni Blanc, the predominant grapes used in the production of Armagnac.

The alcohol content then reduces naturally to about 40% after about forty years.

Chateau Saint Germain
Bordeaux, in the south-west of France, needs little introduction to anyone with an interest in wine. One of the world's most prolific wine regions, it also manages to rank among the most famous and prestigious. The secrets of Bordeaux's wine success (other than magical Bordeaux Blend) are its three trump cards: diversity, quality and quantity. The majority of Bordeaux wines are the dry, medium-bodied reds that made the region famous.

Berteletti (Special Offer was £79.95 now £30) This is sold as a novelty from the 1966 vintage and is excluded from our guarantee.
Bramatera is almost the only DOC of North Piedmont covering various communes and it is one of Piedmont's most curious wines: extremely difficult to find, but when you find a bottle it is always great! The wine's acidity is high and the tannins are closed when young so the wines need much time to develop; it should be considered a sin to open a bottle of Bramaterra before 10 years old. At that point it can produce beautiful wines dominated by fresh fruit and longevity, elegant perfumes with some violet and a still powerful, tannin-rich structure with a long finish.

St Emilion Grand Cru Classe
This wine from 1966 is light tawny in colour. The nose yields an incredible array of aromas - dried leaves, forest floor, and a meaty component.
