1977 Morgan

Post by AHB » 08:29 Fri 01 Aug 2008

Part of a range of Morgan ports made available by Christie’s for buyers to taste prior to the fine wine sale of Thursday 16 November 2006.

Dark brown centre, paling at the rim. Nose of boiled sweets. Easy, balanced entry with the tannins still noticeable and with a bit of bite from the spirit. Fruity mid-palate with many layers of complexity. The aftertaste is gentle but evident and starts with cherry juice flavours before the bitter-dryness of slightly unripe hazelnuts. 6-6 or 89/100.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
