1987 Churchill Agua alta vintage port

Post by uncle tom » 16:05 Sat 26 Jul 2008

From a case bought earlier this year, previously cellared by the Wine Society.

The bottles all had respectable levels - except one.

An excuse (if any were needed) to pop a bottle.

A very serious wine, evidence that '87 was a year that could have been declared.

In style the wine is intermediate between Dow and Graham, and nowhere near mature.

- Worth looking out for.

Score 6-8
