1971 Madeira

D'Oliveiras Sercial Madeira

Raisins, plums, walnuts and a hint of prunes are the aromas in this wonderful Madeira. The scent fills the room as soon as it is open. Pouring it into the glass you notice the crystal clear golden brown colour. You swirl and smell, noticing the raisins and the walnuts. You take a sip, the flavors of raisins and plums fills the front of your mouth, not too sweet. You swish and swallow, the walnuts taking over in the back of the mouth. The taste lingers…

Try this dry Madeira as the ultimate aperitif. Its fresh acidity opens your tatting buds, then you’re ready to go. The right choice for salads with vinaigrette and fresh starters, it pairs marvellously with almonds, goat’s cheese, sushi, avocado and olives.

Terre del Barolo - Riserva

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. Certainly serve it with food to show at it's best.

1971 Chateau Bellefont Belcier

Saint Emilion Grand Cru Classe

A delicate bouquet with red fruits, licorice, butter and oak. This is still very much alive, with berry fruits and a musty, cigar box that follows the wine throughout. It is full bodied with a nice long finish.

Chateau Bellefont Belcier dates back to the seventeenth century as an estate. The vineyard was officially founded in the middle of the eighteenth century by Count Louis Francois de Belcier, which as you can guess, is where the estate took the first part of its name from. In 1803, the Count constructed the chateau that remains in use today.

1971 Chateau La Lagune

Haut-Medoc Grand Cru Classe

Quite a deep garnet core. A surprisingly sweet, fragrant almost floral nose with notes of backed cherries and tar. Lovely gentle persistent weave of mature fruit and tobacco. Still vigorous and lovely balance with sweet fruit on the finish.

Price: £99.95 (6 in Stock)

1971 Chateau Lafite Rothschild

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe, Level vts

Château Lafite Rothschild 1971 proves that Lafite Rothchild's wines always live up to its reputation, and it is the most consistent of first growths.

According to Jamie Goode (of wineanorak.com): "...the 1971s have consistently been undervalued. Thirty years' on, only the best of the vintage will still be at anything like their peak. But it's worth remembering that back in '71 Bordeaux wines were still made for long ageing. Yields have become considerably higher in recent years, and it's arguable that even the best properties no longer make such long-lived wines."

Reviews..
"Has an aroma like an aged Burgundy, with cherry and spice; flavor is mature, soft, very elegant.

1971 Chateau Rieussec

Sauternes 1er Cru Classe HALF BOTTLE 37.5 cl

A superb 95 point (Wine Journal) 1971 dessert wine oozing with character. "A similar colour to the 1976, perhaps even slightly more youthful. An exquisite nose of white flowers, coconut, apricot and white peach. Very fine definition. Lovely balance on the palate that has vibrant acidity, harmony, with notes of fresh citrus fruit laced with a touch of clear honey. Surprisingly minerally on the balletic finish. A superb 1971 that has decades ahead of it. Tasted November 2006. Now-2020+." Neil Martin, Wine Journal, 2007
