Palmer Port, 1971

Colheita (Single Harvest) Port

Release of just 12 bottles of the Palmer 1971 Colheita Port for the UK.
Port from 1971 is extremely rare. We became aware of a small quantity that was acquired by Fernando van Zeller in early 2021 from a family owned vineyard. Recently certified by the IVDP, it is one of the few tawny ports from 1971 in existence.

Tasting Notes:
This is a Port matured in cask for five decades. Medium Tawny colour with aromatic notes of coffee, molasses, figs and cigar box. An elegant light-bodied port with integrated acidity and a subtle texture. Long, smooth finish.

Price: £389.00 (1 in Stock)

Ryst Dupeyron Armagnac, 1971

Ryst Dupeyron Reserve Joseph Millesime vintage Armagnac
50cl bottle

The Joseph Reserve Armagnacs are aged in the greatest tradition. Scents of prunes and vanilla emerge from these elixirs. They are the haute couture of Spirits. They represent the quintessence of brandy.

The 1971 Dupeyron Armagnac 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.

With more air, classic roses and tar, which then faded to reveal truffles after an hour plus. On the palate, dry, high acidity, resolved medium tannins, medium body. Medium+ flavour intensity, with flavours of earth, sweet tea leaves, slight red cherries, grilled herbs, and eventually truffles.

1971 Nebbiolo, 1971

Marchesi di Barolo
very damaged label was £89.00 - now £69.00

The Nebbiolo has a lovely earthy bouquet. The nose has cherries, dark cherries, tar and slight dried rose notes. Complex and layered with high acidity and medium tannins still present. Cherries on the palate too with a 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 flavoured wines. The wines possess rose and anise scented aromatics and deep flavours of cherry, orange peel and subtle green herb tones as they age.

Aglianico, 1971

del Vulture, Riforma Fondiaria - Riserva

The real magic of Aglianico appears to the patient. Just like its Northern Italian stable-mate Nebbiolo (the only grape allowed in majestic Barolo and Barbaresco). The time softens the wines firm tannic structure and enamel-removing acidity revealing lush layers of sweetened fruit and dried floral aromas intermixed with dusty and spiced smoke savory flavors.

Barbera d'Asti is a wine of prestige, rich colours that refer generally to the ruby purple, just what clothes cardinals; the bouquet is ample and composite, with fruity notes of blackberry, cherry, strawberry and red fruit jam and spicy aromas reminiscent of cinnamon, vanilla, green pepper.

Dolcetto d'Alba, 1971

Fontanafredda

A native black grape variety of Northern Italy grown almost exclusively in the provinces of Cuneo and Alessandria in Piedmont. It is relatively easy to cultivate, although it is susceptible to fungal diseases. It ripens before Barbera and Nebbiolo and is often grown in high north-facing sites which would be unsuitable for Nebbiolo. The finest Dolcetto wines come from grapes grown on soils rich with white marls, especially those found on the right bank of the River Tauro. The wines generally are low in tannins and acidity and are usually fruity and fragrant, often with hints of almonds.
