1977 Burmester

Post by jdaw1 » 17:18 Sun 23 Mar 2008

Following a vote, I’ve opened a Burmester 1977, the purchase of which was mentioned here.

Label came off in the shop, and was reglued, slightly crooked, by shop person.

The cork was recessed into the bottle by two or three millimetres.

Colour quite translucent, and quite brown. Consistent with Uncle Tom’s Peter Pan theory.

D+0: To taste (and nose) lighter than medium, spirit, some cherry and candy sugar. Entirely drinkable pleasant port, but below my average. 3-1 perhaps.

Im quiete disappointed with the Burmester VPs through the years. They tend to be below average all the way. On german ebay there is just a bottle 63 Burmester sold for 171 EUR.

I would rather spend this money for some real port.

Axel

P.S.: Better go for the Boa Vista next time :)

Very fair.

What does “Retinto Adamado† mean?

I Googled them, they are Portuguese terms.

Adamado: sweetish.
Portuguese term used to describe a wine with a certain residual sugar content, higher than a dry wine, and lower than a a sweet wine. Is synonimous of half dry or medium dry.

Retinto: the darkest type.
