Reviews for 1966 Warre's Vintage Port

91 points Wine Spectator
There is still plenty of fresh, youthful fruit here. Medium ruby-red, with an intense floral and berry nose, medium-bodied, with rich, sweet fruit flavors, medium tannins and a lingering finish. Very good fruit. (JS, Web Only—1998)

Jancis Robinson
Deep, vibrant ruby with very pale rim. Big, broad, rich nose – quite burly and autumnal. More powerful than the 1963 – with more obvious alcohol.

Warre's Vintage Port, 1966

Vintage port
Plain label | Bottled by Mathew Gloag

** 90 Points Wine Spectator **

The 1966 Warre... is now beginning to reach its full maturity and is likely to be ready for drinking. As it ages further, it will begin to develop gently into a more tawny style wine. Intense, structured with a nice soft finish." Almost perfect in its maturity. Still delicious.

"A powerhouse port that has been mellowed and opened up by time. Now in its 43rd year, its tannins have softened to reveal dark fruit flavors, herbaceousness and plenty of grip in the finish." Wine Spetator, 2003.

"Masses of rich plums and prunes on the flavour. So rich – such a surprise.

Burmester Port , 1966

Colheita Port

We are delighted to offer a UK exclusive on Burmester Colheita Ports.


Reviews:
"(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."

Chateau Cardinal-Villemaurine , 1966

This is a library release from the chateau. This is an exceedingly rare, gloriously mature Saint Emilion Grand Cru. It’s from an estate surrounded by famous names like Pavie, Clos Fourtet and Ausone.
The 1966 Cardinal-Villemaurine is very mature with leather, farmyard and dusty tannins. A little ray of fruit shines through. Decanted 2 hours.

Chateau Latour , 1966

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe (Mid Shoulder- label damp affected)

*** 96 Points Robert Parker ***
*** 95 Points Wine Journal ***

Reviews
"The wine of the vintage, the 1966 Latour is a classic, old style Bordeaux that has required decades to become drinkable. A dark, opaque garnet color is followed by a fabulous nose of cedar, sweet leather, black fruits, prunes, and roasted walnuts, refreshing underlying acidity, sweet but noticeable tannin, and a spicy finish. This powerful, vigorous, immensely impressive, concentrated Latour has reached its plateau of maturity, where it will remain for another 10-20 years.

"The Latour ’66 remains one of the great wines of the vintage.

Chateau Saint Pierre, 1966

Saint Julien (MAGNUM)

Surprisingly good, and filled with truffles, spice, cigar box, earth, black currants and cherry, the wine offers the silky, patina of age along with the earthy, spicy, tobacco laden flavors that can only come with serious bottle age. This is not going to improve, but it's great today.

Janneau , 1966

Armagnac 1966 Vintage

The 1966 Janneau Armanac is the expression of a single year and has a unique character associated with the year and the cask in which it has been stored. These vintages are bottled at the alcohol level in which they naturally come out of the cask. There is a wonderful contrast between the sweet and sour flavours of wood, amplified by the strong alcoholic degree. Rich palate feeling the alcohol and the concentration of dry plums, spicy with persistent flavour of rancio and of spices, but round, soft and long in the finish. The tannins are very present, but full-bodied and round.

Kopke Port, 1966

Colheita Port (Includes Kopke presentation box)
Decanter 2020 Platinum Award Winner

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.

***96 Points- Mark Squires, eRobertParker.com #223 March 2016***

Review:
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,
