Inferno, 1966

A. Pelizzatti

Inferno is one of five viticultural sub-zones specifically identified as producing Valtellina wines of particularly high quality: the other four are Grumello, Sassella, Maroggia and Valgella. Inferno means 'hell' in Italian, and refers to the slopes between Sondrio town and the village of Tresivio. Although DOC laws do not explain the origins of this name, it has been suggested that in summer the slopes here get noticeably hotter than the rest of the valley. Just across Sondrio to the west is Sassella, the finest of the Valtellina sub-zones.

Irroy, 1966

Rosè, Champagne

Champagne Irroy was founded in 1820 and was at one time a member of the old Syndicat des Grandes Marques. After falling under the radar it was purchased by Taittinger in 1955 who have always let it run as a separate house but taken great pride in letting it flourish and produce wines of great character and quality.

Kopke Port, 1966

Colheita Port
In Kopke Presentation Box
Decanter 2020 Platinum Award Winner

Decanter Review for the 1966 Kopke Colheita Port
Gloriously rich and savoury, with rich dried fig and apricot aromas, and the weight and texture of wood ageing. Dates, caramel, leather and thyme on a steely palate with brazil nut hints and roasted spices.

With amber colour and greenish hints. Refined and elegant, reveals richness in the aromatic diversity with noted of nuts, cocoa and wood splashed by a subtle vinegar denoting a great style.Full-bodied, round and concentrated mouth. The quince jam and vanilla flavours are blended with the dried fruit and the candied orange peel. Ends long and with an irresistible freshness.

Leacock, 1966

Bual

John Leacock sailed to Madeira from the United Kingdom (after the death of his father) in 1741 and at the age of 15 became the youngest apprentice at the firm of Madeira merchants, Catanach and Murdoch staying until his contract expired on 11 March 1749. During his apprenticeship he had been in constant contact with an old school friend, John Patient, residing at that time in Charles Town, South Carolina who suggested that they themselves should commence trading. Leacock agreed and this marks the birth of the now world famous company. Bottled in 1994 after 28 years in cask, this totally unique vintage Madeira is sweet, though markedly less so than Malmsey Madeira.

Macon, 1966

Antoine Depagneux

Macon is the name for the red and white wines which come from the Mâconnais section of Burgundy, France. This region is the most southerly in Burgundy, and also the largest. There are 42 villages in the Mâconnais region, broken out into seven designations: Macon, Macon Superieur, Macon Village, Pouilly Fuissé, Pouilly Loche, Pouilly Vinzele, and Saint Veran. The majority of wines from Macon are red wines, using the gamay noir, pinot noir, and pinot gris grapes. These are light wines, and should be drunk young. They go well with red meats and mild cheeses.

Merlot, 1966

Gaggiato - Cantine Noventa del Brenta

Merlot can also produce a delightful and intriguing pure varietal wine. While Merlot has a long history of use as a blending wine, pure Merlot wines have been relatively slow in gaining momentum in Italy. That too has changed and today some of the world’s best Merlot wines bear Italian labels.

Monbazillac, 1966

Chateau Monbazillac

This 1966 wine comes from Monbazillac, an AOC appellation for sweet white wines made in an area in the wider region of Bergerac, in southwestern France. While not as famous nor as expensive as their western neighbours from Sauternes, Monbazillac wines are some of the most well-known sweet white wines produced in France, from botrytis-affected Muscadelle, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Monbazillac wines are often differentiated from the sweet wines of Bordeaux by their full-flavored profile when young (honey, apricot and sweet figs are used to describe them), and by a creamy, nutty character which they develop over time.

Nebbiolo, 1966

Castello Negrotto Giustiniani

The Nebbiolo has a lovely earthy bouquet. The nose has cherries, dark cherries, tar and slight dried rose notes. Complex and layered. Nice acidity. Medium tannins still present. Cherries on the palate too. Nice finish. Great food wine. Nebbiolo is a fickle grape famed as much for its pale appearance as for its tannic character and produces some of the most perfumed and richly flavored wines. Though generally only medium-bodied, the wines possess rose and anise scented aromatics and deep flavors of cherry, orange peel and subtle green herb tones.
